Connecting the unconnected
Our goals are ambitious, deliver internet connectivity to the more than 3.8 billion people who are not yet online.
The Connectivity team at Facebook explores new communication models and technologies in multiple domains, including lasers, terrestrial links, wireless networks and high-altitude platforms. Our team of experts aim to overcome technical challenges, invent new solutions and drastically change the economics of deploying wide-scale internet infrastructure. We work with researchers at universities, government labs and industry to quickly advance these new technologies to become viable solutions for operators and other partners to deploy.
For our broader Connectivity efforts beyond academic collaboration, see the Facebook Connectivity website.
“With about two-thirds of the world’s population not yet online, we want to connect the unconnected. To achieve this, we know we have to break some barriers and create a new set of technologies in the process.” Yael Maguire, Director of Hardware and Engineering Connectivity Lab
