A question rises in mind why Internet Speed Test is so important? Internet a base of today’s technologies, having Internet of things (IoT) in our daily use devices increased it’s importance. With this increase of demand it’s time for Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to increase Internet speed. The struggle for providing Internet connectivity to the developing world is making some headway. Thanks to some of biggest ISPs now internet is available in every house, and some big companies like Google, Facebook, Ericsson, Samsung, Qualcomm etc, trying to provide Internet to locations where internet is currently not available.
Google Project Loon
is one of example of providing such internet connectivity to rural/remote areas, the project consists of balloons placed in the stratosphere at an altitude of about 18 km (11 mi), This will create an aerial wireless network with up to 4G-LTEspeeds.
Internet.org Project wiki
Same hope as Google Project loon or Project Link, Internet.org is having same mission. Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg envisions Internet.org as essentially a software-based “911 service” for the Internet that combines social networking and messaging along with other features — all at no cost to the user. It remains to be seen when the project will take off, as compared to Google already being in the stage of actually building the fiber network in Uganda.
Ultimately providing internet connectivity is the responsibility of local Governments to increase development in their Nation. With help of giant companies like Google, Facebook etc. it’s easy to have someone backing good projects. Future is hidden in Technology and new inventions, this increase in demand adding more and burden on ISPs to provide Good Internet Speed, so we can get good PTCL Speed test results.
