Free Internet Access with Internet.org
Thinking of Connecting with your loved ones free of cost? Internet.org is here. Almost two-thirds of the world do not have internet access. Only one in three of total world’s population has internet access. The cost of devices and services and the unavailability of the content in the local language create a barrier to all who are not connected through Internet. So, to overcome these difficulties, Facebook has created Internet.org, a remarkable and game-changing idea.
Internet.org was launched on August 20, 2013 by social networking service company Facebook in association with seven other mobile phone companies – Samsung, Ericsson, MediaTek, Microsoft, Opera Software, Reliance and Qualcomm. Their main goal is to make Internet access affordable to everybody across the globe by increasing its efficiency, and facilitating the development of new and innovative business models.
According to Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, various technologies have been deployed to increase connectivity across the world and to get free access to content in no time.
On February 10, 2015, Facebook and Reliance Communications partnered and launched the Internet.net Android app in six Indian states – Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Kerala, and Telangana. These cities will have access to various services ranging from news, maternal health, travel, local jobs, sports, communication, and local government information, all free of cost.
Even in Philippines, Facebook’s Internet.org app brought free mobile internet access.
Here is the chance for all event technology websites and apps to make their services accessible to the event attendees free of cost through Internet.org. This comes in handy for all event organisers and event managers too.
Of course, this has a limitation. It is available only to Android users. All these apps and their easy-to-use nature open up a new dimension for all the Smart phone users for whom this was an unexplored territory before Internet.org.
All the Android fans out there, access your apps and services free of cost.
Go grab your app and start enjoying the services with Internet.org.
