Connecting the world to the internet
The rate at which technology is advancing is rapid – it’s changing the way we communicate with friends and family, the way we work, and the way our children are educated. And it’s all on the back of the internet. Yet, there are nearly four billion people in the Developing World who still have no access to the internet. Being unable to take advantage of the a connected world is not restricted to African and Asian nations, however – there are millions of people in rural America and in remote communities in Australia that are still offline. Large, extremely wellfunded tech companies like Facebook, Elon Musk’s SpaceX, and Google are, however, trying to bridge the digital divide, finding new and innovative ways to connect the remote corners of the world.
