Are HAPs a Viable Way to Provide Telecom Infrastructure to Underserved Regions?
June, 2021 — Roughly half of the world’s population is still offline. Some people can’t financially afford smartphones or telecom services, while others live in areas that make even subpar service unattainable. Thanks to mobile technology and broadband networks, it is possible for many of us to have the entire world of information at our fingertips. High-altitude platform (HAP) vehicles may help resolve this digital divide.
Global Entrepreneurs Practice Their Pitches for Startup Space 2021
June, 2021 — Walt Anderson is by no means a rookie entrepreneur. Several milestones could compete for the crowning achievement title of his 25-year career. He co-founded the International Space University in 1988, and established the first pan-European telecommunications operator, Espirit Telecom, which went public in the late ’90s before being acquired by Telco Communication Group.
His new venture is Avealto, which is in the final stage of developing a High Altitude Platform (HAP) to provide telecom infrastructure services in under-served areas of the world.

Loon is gone. With the shutdown of Google’s closely followed and often publicized HAP project, some may be believe that we’ve seen the end of High Altitude Platform(HAP) development. Maybe not.
In an exclusive interview with Satellite Mobility World, well-known serial entrepreneur and visionary, Walter Anderson identifies the real reasons behind the failure of Loon – not the “lack of a market” rationale offered by Loon’s CEO, Alistar Wesgrath.
