    What is Facebook Express WiFi service in India

    I have been hearing about this from couple of days. Can anyone please tell me what is Facebook Express WiFi service which they are planning to initiate in India? What all i can understand from the name is it is some sort of WiFi services to bring more users online. Just like Google did with RailWire WiFi services. Is it the same thing with Facebook Express WiFi ?

    Your assumption is correct. It is something like Google RailWire.

    Facebook has partnered with Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) to bring 125 rural public Wi-Fi hotspots in the country. By doing this they want to bring affordable broadband to rural areas in India for which they are in talk with Internet Service Providers (ISPs)

    Of course Facebook needs to do this because India has the second largest Facebook user with over 142 million after USA. This is what An internet.org post by Facebook reads,

    Express Wifi empowers local entrepreneurs to help provide quality internet access to their neighbors and make a steady income. Working with local internet service providers or mobile operators, they’re able to use software provided by Facebook to connect their communities.
