Facebook plans to use solar-powered planes as well as satellites to provide free internet services in the remote and unconnected regions of India and also other developing countries.

The social media company, which is spearheading the internet.org platform aimed at providing free web connectivity to remote regions, said it is working on developing a series of new tools that will aid the growth of the internet to the unconnected.

“We are working closely on these technologies in our connectivity labs. They are in early stages of development,” Facebook vice president of internet.org Chris Daniels said at the Mobile World Congress held here.

The company is trying to reach many of the unconnected areas in Africa and has similar plans for India. internet.org provides a host of applications free-of-cost to the unconnected areas and these also include a lighter version of Facebook.

Daniels said connectivity and greater access to the web will help people avail services in crucial areas like health, education and employment.

Using self-sufficient aircraft is one of the methods. “The reason why planes are interesting is that you can have solar-powered planes that stay very high in the sky and provide connectivity… The planes can be fuelled by the sun, do not need to have a generator or physical infrastructure on the ground. That’s potentially an attractive way through which we can provide connectivity.”

The satellites offer a similar route. “Through these methods, we can reach areas where optical fibre is not present.”
