(Reuters) - Google Inc said it will buy drone-maker Titan Aerospace in an attempt to provide Internet access to more parts of the world, the Wall Street Journal reported on Monday.

Google did not disclose a purchase price for Titan, whose solar-powered drones are intended to fly for years, the paper said. 

 

Facebook Inc said early in March that in was in talks to buy Titan for $60 million, according to media reports.

 

Last year Google launched a small network of balloons over the Southern Hemisphere, dubbed as Project Loon, in an experiment it hopes could bring reliable Internet access to the world's most remote regions.
