The Telecom Infra Project has gotten a huge amount of attention since its launch, mainly due to the Facebook brand, but why is it so important?
It’s all about bringing connectivity to everyone, equally.
Facebook wants to make sure connectivity is fair and equal for everyone in the world, ensuring the digital lifestyle extends beyond developed nations and into the ignored territories.
Again, this might sound like a corporate giant trying to cover up nefarious objectives with a light and fluffy initiative but this is a genuine mission.
Firstly, decouple hardware and software to bring down the price of connectivity infrastructure.
This will, in theory, accelerate the rollout of said infrastructure into the regions were ROI has been hard to find.
