"Mark Zuckerberg has said he wants to help connect another billion people to the Internet. Now, he's taking the next step along that path.

Facebook said Monday that it has partnered with the French satellite company Eutelsat to provide wireless Internet access to sub-Saharan Africa. Starting in the second half of 2016, Facebook's Internet.org initiative will pay to use up all the available bandwidth on Eutelsat's AMOS-6 satellite, which will carry data from mobile users on the ground to the rest of the globe."
