Re: Geography?
I hope we can work to assess this in the new year--in the aftermath of the onslaught we're all being subjected to at #CES2017. :)

Re: Geography?
Loon looks really promising, but I haven't seen how the project will deal with FAA regulations in N America? I wonder if Loon is legally possible in the US?

Re: Geography?
Even low earth orbit satellites suffer from significant lag times-- due to the physics of sending a signal to space and back. For some applications it's not a problem but for real-time communication it's not ideal. Also, the whole point of developing wireless drones (or balloons) is to get away from expensive orbiting hardware that can't be upgraded easily.

Re: Geography?
You Welcome @Dhagar--I understand they're ready to "cut it loose" from the safe confines of Project X--which means they're hopeful (if anyone has any further developments, please share)--I also will be keen to see the community sharing their thoughts on the latest that Facebook is up to in that vain.

Re: Geography?
The initiatives by Google & Facebook are in this vain--Here is the Project Loon site by Google that was quite enlightening to get caught up on:

Re: Geography?
@mhhf1ve, I am wondering as well if there will be further development in the use of satellites and other connectivity that will either augment and/or provide an alternative to broadband wireless?

@batye, no one controls economic opportunity so it is a true empowerment to move into this space and compete for dollaras and investments and let those leading development win!

Re: Geography?
I suppose, as noted elsewhere on this site, that fiber is a pre-requisite for broadband wireless -- because without the fiber backhaul the wireless traffic hits bottlenecks and can't reach its full potential. So I expect to see a follow-up investment in wireless tech after the groundwork is laid.
