Mark Zuckeberg, CEO and founder of Facebook, is launching its new internet service at a lower price in some countries, including Mexico and Brazil.
Facebook will offer Wi-Fi points via satalite in areas where there is no cable or fiber optic Internet service in Mexico.
The firm will launch this service thanks to its partnership with the company Hughes Network Systems, provider of satellite-based communications services where its main objective is to bring an Internet connection to communities where it does not exist, as indicated by the communications services provider through a statement.
Hughes Network Systems expressed in that text, that the technology uses a solution that combines a VSAT (very small aperture terminal) satellite by Hughes and the Wi-Fi equipment with the Wi-Fi Express platform of Facebook.
