The world’s largest social networking site Facebook is going to launch the Satellite, so the people of rural areas of Africa can login with the free internet access through mobile phones.

Over the last year Facebook Internet.org Team has been exploring ways to use aircraft and satellites to beam internet access down into communities from the sky. To connect people living in remote regions, traditional connectivity infrastructure is often difficult and inefficient, so Facebook Internet.org  need to invent new technologies.

Mark Zuckerberg wrote on his Facebook wall that his team is collaboration with Eutelsat, a new satellite called AMOS-6 is going to provide internet coverage to large parts of Sub-Saharan Africa. The AMOS-6 satellite is under construction now and will launch in 2016 into a geostationary orbit that will cover large parts of West, East and Southern Africa. Facebook team are going to work with local partners across these regions to help communities begin accessing Facebook internet.org services provided through satellite.

This is just one of the innovations that Zuckerberg team is working on to achieve their mission with internet.org. In the end Zuckerberg conclude his status posting “Connectivity changes lives and communities. We’re going to keep working to connect the entire world — even if that means looking beyond our planet.”
