Facebook has taken another step forward in its goal to provide Internet to the world. The company's now partnering with French satellite company Eutelsat to give access to large parts of Sub-Saharan Africa. (Video via Internet.org and Eutelsat)
Facebook and Eutelsat say the satellite's capacity is well-suited for Internet access via "affordable, off-the-shelf customer equipment."
Yet, to make the venture possible, the two companies are reportedly buying the entire broadband capacity of the new AMOS-6 satellite. Facebook and Eutelsat's service is scheduled to begin at the end of next year. (Video via Internet.org)
