An aerostat requires tethers
Which means that you now have a semi-unpredictable obstruction from 0ft to 60000ft that cannot easily be seen by pilots of other aircraft. You can map it out on a chart, but then you'll have to say "obstruction from point a with a potential circumference of xx miles" since it will never point straight up but bend in a curve. It will also have to go through various classes of airspace, including class A.
I'm quite sure that the average folks on the flight deck of your 737/A320 do not expect any obstacles when cruising at 35000ft.
It's just a bad idea.
but there's no technical barrier to those parts, other than scale
Ask the Chinese about their experiences in suppressing "subversive" content. Joe-Ping Random-Lee out on the street will probably be able to give you 5 different types of VPNs, proxies, or other ways to circumvent the Great Firewall.
Yet another example of the idiots in The U.K. trying to force their ridiculous standards on everyone. It's up to parents, not politicians. I'm glad they're taking their stupid shit out of the EU.

Put up a sign stating that cellphones observed during the concert will be confiscated
That does not make it legal to confiscate anything that I legally own.
The only thing that a venue can do is ask me to leave. If I refuse, they can call the cops for trespassing, but that's about it.
observers violating those terms deserve some kind of negative reinforcement
Which will be limited to being thrown out.
Try eating fiber. No more slow shit.
It's not about fiber. If you have Netflix, go find "Code Black". It's a documentary about a group of ER doctors, and of of the things that stand out is their move to a "HIPAA compliant" hospital. One of the doctors can be quoted saying something like "if I use the restroom, I want to login. Login Login Login everywhere". Sure, HIPAA keeps patient records safe. But what use is that to the patient if he's dead? I'd rather be alive and have my records slightly less safe than being dead but knowing for sure that nobody knows I had a heart attack.
Also, your fiber is not going to fix it. Yes, fiber will lower the latency on the physical transmission. However, you fail to take into account that you still need a datacenter with computing power (since "the cloud" is nothing more than a computer elsewhere). And that's where you'll see most of the latency coming from.
But seriously, watch "Code Black" if you're bored. It's an excellent documentary.
Let me encourage readers to ignore everything in the above post and instead read the FARs
Let me encourage readers to ignore everything in the above post and use common sense.
Private pilots can get their license after 40 hours of flight. They can then take passengers up in the air, and with a bit of extra training even fly complex and turbine aircraft.
They are only checked every two years by a flight instructor, not an examiner. In other words, as a passenger you might end up flying with someone who hasn't flown an aircraft for almost two years (although there is a requirement for PPLs to have 3 take offs and landings in the past 90 days before flying with passengers, it is difficult to check this).
Private pilots also have simplified medical requirements. You can end up flying with a 42 year old private pilot who hasn't flown more than 30 minutes (the time it takes to perform said take offs and landings) in almost two years and who hasn't been medically checked in almost five years.
I hold a PPL myself, and would never ever let my family fly with a random pilot I found on a shabby website. Not because of the FAA, but because I know the system.
