Connect People Everywhere
We are pioneering a new era of stratospheric communications to expand internet access worldwide.
Loon Launches Commercial Service in Kenya
Loon launches commercial service in Kenya in partnership with Telkom Kenya, expanding connectivity to underserved areas.
Loon & AT&T Partner for Global Disaster Preparedness
Loon’s partnership with AT&T will help restore connectivity in places impacted by natural disasters.
Expanding to Mozambique
Loon’s deal with Vodacom will bring balloon-powered internet to underserved regions of Mozambique.
Harnessing the Stratosphere
Loon and other industry leaders from the HAPS Alliance see an enormous, untapped commercial opportunity in Earth’s stratosphere.
The internet feels ubiquitous, but it's not: nearly half the world's population lacks access to basic connectivity. Loon is working to bridge this divide by pioneering high-altitude communications technology that makes it possible to connect more people, places and things worldwide.
Global Connectivity Solutions
Mobile Network Expansion
Mobile network operators can expand their coverage footprint and deliver connectivity to previously unserved or underserved areas. Our solution leverages standard LTE technology, making it seamless for end users to connect directly with their handsets.
A natural disaster can knock out ground-based communications at the times when they are needed the most. Leveraging a partnership with AT&T, Loon can help mobile network operators restore service quickly when connectivity is crucial.
Loon’s advanced network orchestration software, Loon SDN, helps manage complex, highly dynamic constellations. Our solution accelerates development time, and efficiently manages network traffic, helping satellite operators and HAPS manufacturers deliver reliable connections and better serve users below.
Loon’s pioneering technology unlocks the power of the stratosphere to deliver connectivity to those who need it.
“At AT&T, delivering reliable connections is central to our mission. So in situations when disaster strikes — and our customers need connection more than ever — rapidly restoring communications is critical. We’re pleased to work with Loon to make this an ongoing reality for customers around the world.”
“Telkom remains focused on bringing innovative products and solutions to the Kenyan market. Our association with Loon, will see us partner with a pioneer in the use of high-altitude balloons to provide LTE coverage across larger areas in Kenya.”
“Loon has unique experience developing sophisticated network management software that assures delivery of reliable broadband services over highly dynamic networks that undergo constant change.”
“Vodacom’s partnership with Loon is a perfect example of how technological innovation can connect the most rural communities in Africa. We are pleased to be part of this initiative in Mozambique, which is helping to bridge the digital divide.”
“The stratosphere represents an enormous opportunity to bring the benefits of connectivity to more people around the world. But we will only be successful in harnessing the potential of the stratosphere if we come together to advocate for and collaborate on the technologies that will make this possible. This HAPS Alliance is an important step forward in building an established industry that will help us realize the promise of the stratosphere to connect people everywhere.”
Loon is a member of and actively contributes to a variety of industry associations.
