On March 27, 2014, Facebook announced a connectivity lab as part of the Internet.org initiative, with the goal of bringing the Internet to everybody via drones, acquired from the company Ascenta. It is also communicated by the Connectivity Lab, that, besides using drones, low-Earth orbit and geosynchronous satellites would also be part of the project, for establishing internet connectivity in other areas. All three systems would rely on free space optics (FSO). In free space optics, the signal is sent in a compact bundle of infrared light
An Indian journalist, in his reply to Mark Zuckerberg's article defending Internet.org in India, criticized Internet.org as "being just a Facebook proxy targeting India's poor" as it provides restricted Internet access to Reliance Telecom's subscribers in India. Until April 2015, Internet.org users could access (for free) only a few websites, and Facebook's role as gatekeeper in determining what websites were in that list was criticised for violating net neutrality. In May 2015, Facebook announced that the Free Basics Platform would be opened to websites that met its criteria.
Apple's change will limit their ability to run personalized ads. To make ends meet, many will have to start charging you subscription fees or adding more in-app purchases, making the internet much more expensive and reducing high-quality free content.
Facebook's Internet.org, which aims to give impoverished people around the world free mobile access to a selection of Internet services, is opening the platform to developers after facing criticism that the program's restrictions violate net neutrality principles.
The partnership with mobile operators gives free access to few dozen websites (including Facebook) through a mobile app available in parts of Africa, Latin America, and Asia. Although the app is ad-free and companies don't pay to be part of it, several companies in India pulled out of Internet.org because it steers users toward a limited set of services.
"This program supports itself," he said. "When people use free basic services, more of them then decide to pay to access the broader Internet, and this enables operators to keep offering the basic services for free. It's not sustainable to offer the whole Internet for free, though. It costs tens of billions of dollars a year to run the Internet, and no operator could afford this if everything were free. But it is sustainable to build free basic services that are simpler, use less data, and work on all low-end phones."
Internet.org connects people without any Internet access to essential services such as education and health information, Zuckerberg said. Strict adherence to network neutrality principles "should not prevent access," Zuckerberg said. "We need both. It's not an equal Internet if the majority of people can't participate... Giving four billion people some free Internet access is the right thing to do."

Hi, I tried configuring the D-Link router for my business, it is successfully configured for my business page, however when guest opens the WhatsApp/ FB app it is not rerouting to the browser to check in my business page. It is simply allowing guests to use the Free WiFi. Is there any way to configure the check in option mandatory to use the free WiFi. kindly advise.
I am looking to flash my modem with one of the many ipen source router firmware and try to program my own guest page asking clients to like on FB using their app sibce they are getting free WiFI while at ouf wedding venue.
Do you guys know if this system only allows visitors to check-in on your business page or if it also provides the possibility to stimulate visitors to LIKE your page? Since I installed facebook-wifi, but my guests are only asked to check-in, but not to like the page? Looking forward to some support!
From an American perspective, the very intrusiveness of this proposal is enough to make it implausible: how could we rely on bureaucrats to protect our dignity in cases where we have failed to protect it on our own? Europeans, who have less of a free speech tradition and far more of a tradition of allowing people to remove photographs taken and posted against their will, will be more sympathetic to the proposal. But from the perspective of most American courts and companies, giving people the right selectively to delete their pasts from public discourse would pose unacceptably great threats to free speech.
We are thrilled to share with you that we have partnered up with Safaricom to give you free browsing up to 50 MB every day when you use Opera Mini, Opera News and Opera News Lite on your smartphone on the Safaricom network.
If you are using the Safaricom network in Kenya, and you have installed any of the three apps, you are all set to start experiencing the web without spending on data bundles. By getting 50 MB every day for free in Opera Mini, it means that you have more data for liking more photos on Instagram, more data for checking the status of your friends on Facebook. All of these when you access your social media channels from your Opera Mini browser.
Early this year, we also announced the installation of the new Opera data centers in Mombasa, Kenya. By installing local data servers we reduce latency when you are browsing which significantly increase your browsing speed up to four times faster than before. This gives you an uninterrupted and quicker internet connection than using other browsers available in digital app stores or those preloaded on your smartphone.
The free browsing package of 50 MB is available in the three apps. In Opera Mini, free browsing is available on the latest version of the browser. Before you use free browsing in Opera Mini make sure that you upgrade to the latest version of the app following the steps below.

The free daily data covers browsing only. The data package does not include video streaming or downloading files from the internet. You will be charged out of your normal data bundle for this.
