Technology Leaders Launch Partnership To Make Internet Access Available To All

"As a world leader in mobile solutions for emerging markets having powered more than 300 million smart devices within 2 years, MediaTek whole heartedly supports the Internet.org initiative," said MK Tsai, Chairman of MediaTek. "Global internet and social media access represent the biggest shift since the industrial revolution, and we want to make it all-inclusive."

"Nokia is deeply passionate about connecting people – to one another and the world around them," said Nokia President and CEO Stephen Elop. "Over the years, Nokia has connected well over a billion people. Our industry is now at an exciting inflection point where internet connectivity is becoming more affordable and efficient for consumers while still offering them great experiences. Universal internet access will be the next great industrial revolution."

"Today, more than 300 million people use Opera every month to access the internet. Tomorrow, we have a chance to serve the next 5 billion people connecting on mobile devices in developing countries. It's in Opera's DNA to save people time, money and data, and through Internet.org we think we can help advance these goals," said Lars Boilesen, CEO Opera Software.

"Mobile has helped to transform many people's lives in the emerging regions where often a computing device will be the first and only mobile experience they'll ever have" said Paul Jacobs, chairman of the board and CEO of Qualcomm Incorporated. "Having shipped more than 11 billion chips, Qualcomm is a market leader that is committed to the goal of bridging the digital divide. We're pleased to be a part of Internet.org and to be working with key ecosystem players to drive this initiative forward."

"This new initiative has big potential to help accelerate access to the internet for everyone," said JK Shin, CEO and President of the IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics. "We're focused on delivering high quality mobile devices to ensure that the next five billion people have great mobile internet experiences."
