Tech Giants Launch Partnership to Bring Internet to All

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has announced the launch of Internet.org, a global partnership of technology leaders with the goal of making internet access available to the next 5 billion people.

Internet.org is founded by the following companies — Facebook, Ericsson, MediaTek, Nokia, Opera, Qualcomm and Samsung. Their goal is “to make internet access available to two-thirds of the world who are not yet connected, and to bring the same opportunities to everyone that the connected third of the world has today.”


These tech giants will share tools, resources and best practices in an effort to:

1) make internet access more affordable by developing technologies that can decrease the cost of delivering data to people worldwide, and helps expand internet access in underserved communities.


2) enhance data usage by investing in tools and software to improve data compression capabilities and make data networks and services run more efficiently.

3) help businesses drive access by supporting development of sustainable new business models and services that make it easier for people to access the internet.

The Internet.org website is already up and running and will provide an overview of its mission and goals. In the coming weeks, it will feature interviews with technology leaders and experts, along with the latest news on the initiative’s activities.

    I’m surprised na hindi kasali ang google among those founder although google has already made plans for internet expansion.

    Sana ito na ang magiging lunas sa superbagal at supermahal na Internet service na inooffer ng mga ganid na local telcos dito satin.

    Busy si google sa kanyang mga products sa pag promote kaya hindi na sumali sa mga ganito. The internet.org is non-profit organization has their own objective baka pag samantalahan lang yan ng google pag sumali sila dyan.

    alam na natin lahat ng products ng google meron rocket na advertisement at privacy issues sa kanilang ToS agreement.

  7. Good news yan, sana umabot dito yan sa atin.
    Lalo’t na dito sa amin, Bagal ng net..

    okay lang naman kahit di kasama si google jan kasi may mga hakbang na rin sila para mapaabot ung net sa iba tulad ng paggamit ng mga hot air baloon na magsisilbing parang “router” para magkaroon ng access kahit sa mga malalayong lugar…

  9. ADvice says:

    dapat kasama uncapped hi-speed internet for all, and a way to get connected without using local ISP’s.

  10. -Joe says:

    Ang layunin talaga nito dun lang sa walang internet access na lugar kaya wag na kayo umasa kung aabot pa dito Pinas. Paki basa ulit sa internet.org or CNN interview kay pareng Mark Zucks…
