Facebook has already taken its step towards bringing free web access to different countries through internet.org and wants to act on this project more aggressively and expand it to around 100 countries which they would be by the end of this year most probably according to the Vice President of internet.org.
Internet.org is at present working in countries like Zambia, Tanzania, Kenya, Ghana, Columbia and India, around 7 million people till now have benefitted through this project as they got access to health, employment and local information services without having to pay any data charges.
This is a very noble cause for which Facebook is working to provide basic internet facilities to those people who couldn’t get online and could have access to Wikipedia job and other health sites including Facebook and for this internet.org is working with the local data providers.
Facebook would like to expand internet.org to almost 100 countries enabling more and more people to come online through it. People at present have limited access to Facebook and for a complete access they are being prompted to upgrade for a paying data plan.
The countries where internet.org is operational has witnessed a rise in the data customers of the local operators and even the usage of the smart phone has increased which is for sure a very positive development.
