In Indonesia, 72.41% of urban residents can surf in cyberspace. Meanwhile, in rural-urban areas or areas between villages and cities, only 49.5% are connected to the internet. While in rural or rural areas only 48.3% are connected to the internet. By region, the composition of the largest internet users is on Java, which is 58.1%. After that in Sumatra with composition of 19% and Kalimantan 8%. While the other regions, namely Sulawesi, Bali-Nusa Tenggara, and Maluku-Papua, the composition is 6.7%, 5.6%, and 2.5% respectively. To overcome this problem, several efforts have been made to equalize internet access in Indonesia, and one of the efforts offered by Google companies is (Project Loon) which is a communication technology based on Hight Altitude Platform (HAPs). Based on this, it is necessary to analyze the feasibility of the Project Loon so that there is no overlap and regulatory errors in its implementation. In conducting a feasibility analysis, the Regulatory Impact Analysis (RIA) method is used to measure the feasibility of Project Loons in terms of frequency management by observing the potential frequencies available in Indonesia and the regulations currently available. So that it can be obtained a conclusion that the Project Loon allows it to be applied in Indonesia, but it requires regulations that regulate it mainly in terms of frequency.
