Facebook offers free Data to AP, Telangana
Facebook Offers Free Data to AP, Telangana Though Reliance ISP. A few hour hours ago, he launched the Internet.org in India -- giving people in six Indian states access to free basic internet services .
This is really a good news to all the citizens who wish to access information on health, education, jobs and communication.
Like Bill Clinton and Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, founder CEO of Face Book, the crowning glory of social media, has chosen both AP and Telangana for free internet service provision, though it rides on Reliance ISP.
A few hour hours ago, he launched the Internet.org in India -- giving people in six Indian states access to free basic internet services . The Internet.org was rolled out last year as a free basic service to countries with more than 150 million people total across Africa and Latin America. More than 6 million people are already connected to the internet who previously weren't. How the internet is changing their lives and communities is an incredible folklore now in those countries.
Mark Zuckerberg, whose personal wealth is assessed at 33.1 Billion dollars and who draws just one dollar salary from Facebook says that to continue connecting the world, we have to connect India. More than a billion people in India don’t have access to the internet. That means they can’t enjoy the same opportunities many of us take for granted, and the entire world is robbed of their ideas and creativity.
Marks' statement and offer is a major boon to the two Telugu states - Telangana and Andhra Pradesh who have chosen the path of internet to create more jobs, provide medicare to millions of poor and also improve the livelihood and farming of agriculturists. Both the states have an agenda for Wi-Fi and free internet services to all at cost effective rates.
He says all those on the Reliance network in the states of Tamil Nadu, Mahararashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Kerala and Telangana will now have free data access to more than three dozen services. Mark hopes that by providing free basic services into people's hands, more change can follow pretty rapidly. Knowledge and tools were starting to make life better for everyone.
The Facebook founder had in October visited Chandauli, a small rural village in Northern India that recently got connected to the internet. Students at this computer centre were learning to use the internet for the first time. People from across the surrounding area were visiting the centre, and asking the kids to look up information for them. One day, we will connect everyone, and the power of the internet will serve every community across India and the world, he adds with a parting line That day is coming.
