Internet.org an Opportunity calling .

Standard

Every person joining the internet has a story to tell. Here’s a story from a student in Colombia who is using the internet to learn.Internet.org is a partnership between social networking services company Facebook and six companies (Samsung, Ericsson, MediaTek, Opera Software, Nokia and Qualcomm) that plans is to bring affordable access to selected Internet services to less developed countries by increasing efficiency,and facilitating the development of new business models around the provision of Internet access .
A year after its successful launched of free basic services in Zambia.Today, more than one billion people in 17 countries can use Internet.org. An application tool that has allowed people to connect to the web in the most remote of areas in order to improve and further there lives. Now, more people are getting online, using these free tools for health, education, jobs and communication putting an end to poverty, and discovering the value of the internet.
After launching free basic services, mobile operators are seeing people adopt mobile data 50% faster than before. More than half the new people coming online through Internet.org choose to pay for data and access more internet services within the first 30 days. In June, people used Internet.org to access online health services more than one million times.
Studies show that for every 10 people who gain access to the internet, around one person is lifted out of poverty. If we can connect the 4 billion people with internet access, we can help raise hundreds of millions out of poverty. An application for the free service can be found here for Android & IOS platforms .Alongside the app launch, Internet.org is also experimenting with drones and satellites to deliver internet to remote areas.
To continue making progress, we’re expanding free basic services to even more operators by making it easier for them to offer Internet.org. We also recently announced the Internet.org Platform to help any developer worldwide offer their services.
