The power of the Internet is unquestionable.The positive impact of Internet access is even more evident across the developing world. In India, a country with more than 1.2 billion people, less than 15 million broadband connections exist, and less than 10 percent of the population has any online access.Globally, more than 5 billion people utilize 6 billion mobile phone connections, while 2 billion people access 1 billion Internet connections.Mobile phone users also have access to networks for connectivity. The complexity of computers is no longer a barrier to Internet adoption.For the same to happen in India, we realized that devices would need to sell for less than $50 .The next billion Internet users are coming on board fast and furious, and the resulting empowerment of humanity can't be underestimated.
