It may seem strange that there are still many people who do not have access to the Internet, and now there are some companies who are banning together in order to try and make the Internet worldwide.
Internet.org has been working on this issue for quite some time. Their largest objective is to try and make the Internet affordable. Many people in developing countries would not be able to pay for access, and that is the largest hurdle they face.
Social media giant Facebook has now become a part of the project. If the Internet can reach the 2/3 of the population that do not have access to it, the world will become a much smaller place. By making the Internet worldwide, there will be more job opportunities, and hopefully, it will help developing countries financially.
Internet.org is running a test phase to see how well it can be implemented, and hopefully sooner than later, the world will have access to the Internet.
