Google Is Finally Tackling Connectivity

Hardware, software, connectivity. That last one has been the biggest hurdle. So it is great that Google is finally tackling it in a big way. Google Fiber has been too slow rolling out. But Google balloons were a good sign. Then it bought that drone company. Now it is going higher up into satellites. And it is going to the ground level with this wifi initiative. I am thankful.

Google has a beautiful business model. If people can go online, they are going to use their search engine. And that search engine serves ads. And so helping people go online is big money.
