Google is working on many things, and that includes balloons that fly high in the sky to bring Internet infrastructure to locations that can’t be wired for it easily.

Today, Sri Lanka announced that it’s the first country to ever get universal Internet access from Google’s Project Loon. Thanks to a partnership with Google, the country promises “affordable high-speed Internet” for all of its residents.

Google Loon was announced in 2013, with only incremental and anecdotal information hitting the presses up until now. This is a landmark moment for Loon, and clearly for Sri Lanka.
