And because there's no cable, this means there's none of the time, cost, and hassle involved in digging trenches or stringing cable along poles. However, keeping stratospheric balloons going permanently is a tricky task, which is why Alphabet's R&D arm, X, has been working toward a ground-based solution that replicates the same technological ethos as the balloons. The company hopes that free space optical communications (FSOC) technology will form the spine of high-bandwith internet in southeast India.

Andhra Pradesh government has entered into an agreement with Google X to bring their FSOC technology to the state.

The MoU was signed in the presence of Hon'ble Minister of IT, Government of Andhra Pradesh Shri Nara Lokesh and CEO of Google X Astro Teller in San Francisco, USA during the former's US tour.
