Facebook Express Wifi is trending in India after news appeared that the Facebook’s Wi-Fi service was being tested at a number of rural locations in India. This is the second attempt to solve India’s connectivity problem by Facebook. Facebook tried to solve the problem of Internet access in India via mobile data. Previously, the name of this project was Internet.org and then later renamed to Free Basics.
Facebook is testing Express Wifi in India as the problem of providing Internet access to people. Express Wifi is a model for public Wi-Fi deployment and it would enable people to connect their phones to the Internet without spending too much.
Express Wifi will not be free Internet. Customers can purchase data packs via digital vouchers. Facebook has not shared the rates it is charging for Express Wifi.
Facebook is also experimenting with products like laser drones to enhance Internet connectivity for users across the world, but there are no plans to bring that to India as of now.
