The administration declared not long ago it would take a 25 percent stake in a joint endeavour with Google to convey a rapid Internet administration fuelled by helium-filled inflatables.
Sri Lanka is not contributing any capital, but rather will take the stake consequently to allocate range for the undertaking. A further 10 percent of the joint endeavour would be offered to existing phone administration suppliers on the island.
It guarantees to develop scope and less expensive rates for information administrations.
Administration suppliers will have the capacity to get to higher speeds and enhance the nature of their current administration once the inflatable undertaking is up and running.
The inflatables, once in the stratosphere, will be twice as high as business carriers and scarcely obvious to the bare eye. The inflatables will have a lifespan of around 180 days, yet can be reused, by Lankan authorities included in the endeavour.
