Free Internet Access Increasing in Developing Countries

Mobile is continuing to mature as a viable and increasingly popular format for participating in online survey’s.  Adapting questions, length of study, and portability for  the needs of mobile respondents is quickly coming of age.  
Growing rapidly is Internet.org by Facebook – 
Over 85% of the world’s population lives in areas with existing cellular coverage, yet only about 30% of the total population accesses the internet.
Affordability and awareness are significant barriers to internet adoption for many and today we are introducing the Internet.org app to make the internet accessible to more people by providing a set of free basic services.
The Internet.org app is currently available to Airtel customers in Ghana, Kenya and Zambia, Tigo customers in Colombia and Tanzania, and Reliance customers in India.  – sources wearesocial.sg and internet.org.
