Zuckerberg announces coalition to make Internet affordable for all

Facebook has just announced a partnership with Ericsson, Samsung,, MediaTek, Nokia, Qualcomm and Opera, to launch Internet.org, a project aimed at bringing affordable Internet access to the five billion people without it. The companies will work together on data-compression technologies and cheap, high quality smartphones to make the web cheaper.

"We want to make it so that anyone, anywhere -- a child growing up in rural India who never had a computer -- can go to a store, get a phone, get online, and get access to all of the same things that you and I appreciate about the Internet," Zuckerberg said in an exclusive broadcast interview with CNN's "New Day" anchor Chris Cuomo.


"They're going to use it to decide what kind of government they want, get access to healthcare for the first time ever, connect with family hundreds of miles away that they haven't seen in decades."
