Titan Aerospace was finally bought by Google, not Facebook … what a surprise. Google confirmed the transaction but did not mention the value. This is an effort to connect some areas from some countries that do not have Internet access at this point. Of course, these new areas will be a very good engine for growth in the following years.
Some models produced by Titan are able to fly continuously for up to five years without landing. Initial reports were indicating that Facebook will buy this company but in the end they had to settle for another drone maker, Ascenta.
This is a race that is trying to connect around 2 thirds of the world population, population that is not currently connected to the internet in any way.
