News about Internet.org creating free network access for users:

PCWorld.com News Article July 31, 2014

The position http://internet.org develops comes from the basic statistic:

Only 1 out of every 3 people can go online.

Why aren’t more people connected?

  • Devices are too expensive.
  • Service plans are too expensive.
  • There’s no mobile network to connect to.
  • Content isn’t available in the local language.
  • Awareness of the value of internet is limited.
  • Availability of power sources is limited.
  • Networks can’t support large amounts of data.

Internet.org urges:

“Together we can remove these barriers and give billions of people the power to connect.”

need advice from internet wizard

Hello David,
I attended your first lecture at the library and missed your July 22 meeting. My question does not pertain to your website, but this is the only way I know of to get a hold of you.

I am building a new home in Bandon, and have to make some decisions on how to wire our house, on Monday. I’m currently using Comspan for internet, phone, and TV, and they will be wiring my new house. However, after talking with the sales person today, I’m wondering if I’m only getting one side of the story…namely, their side. I’ve heard about VoIP, Skype, Netflix, Amazon Prime and how one can watch TV shows on their computers or use their TVs as an internet screen. But, this is waaay over my head.

I was wondering if I could pay you for your insight/advice in what the future may hold and the most efficient/simplest way to “wire” my house.

Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks.
Beverly Minn
