Mark Zuckerberg vows to make Internet and Facebook available in remote communities through LASERS — Facebook Laser Beam is coming.
Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s head, is planning to make Facebook available in the most remote areas on different parts of the earth by equipping satellites with lasers. The social network head plans to establish hi-tech data cannons equipped Bond villain style orbiting base.
Zuckerberg wants the Internet to reach the one billion world populace living beyond the range of wireless connectivity.
The social media titan’s plan regarding embedding laser technology into satellites is part of the latest Internet.org campaign that has been initiated by Facebook in partnership with six other companies. The aim of this campaign is to provide cheap internet to citizens in developing countries.
Mark Zuckerberg wrote on his Facebook page:
“We’re working on ways to use drones and satellites to connect the billion people who don’t live in the range of existing wireless networks. Our Connectivity Lab is developing a laser communications system that can beam data from the sky into communities. This will dramatically increase the speed of sending data over long distances. This is just one connectivity project we’re working on, but I was excited to share this with you.”
