Google changes the world for the better, and the others do not

Imagine a world, where google would for free provide a wifi like signal, allowing calls and internet using a sophisticated setup of balloons, and devices powered by solar energy.

No more telecoms, no more spying governments, even in countries with the most oppressive regimes people would have uncensored access to information. Changing mobile devices so they can pickup an extra google frequency does not seem to be such a game changer.

Google shows it has the power to change the world, without being constrained by a political agenda, that is why the politicians pick on them. And the likes of Ericsson should better be silent, even today internet access in rural areas in most west European countries is facing bandwidth limitations. If they can, why did they not do it 10 years ago ?.
