Facebook’s Internet.org Project Is Now Available in India
Facebook’s Internet.org project is launched in India with the aim of providing free web access to all. Under the leadership of Facebook -with 6 more tech giants’ contribution- the project was released in Zambia in June 2014.
As announced by Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg, the project offers free Internet access to millions of people about the services ranging from news, maternal health, travel, local jobs, sports, communication, and local government information.
Thanks to Internet.org, Facebook managed to offer free web access to 150 million people in Africa and now the company wishes to find ways to provide internet access to more than a billion people in India who aren’t yet connected.
