The search engine mastermind plans to make the Internet available to all

Web giant Google dreams of one day supplying the entire world, including remote areas of developing countries, with Internet access that comes from solar powered balloons. However in the meantime, the search giant will settle with fibre optic networks.

The Google Project Links initiative aims to bring fibre-optic networks to developing countries so that local providers can offer ultra-fast Internet and cell phone service.

This week, Google announced that it's bringing project link to Uganda's capital city Kampala. The company says the project is an attempt to foster entrepreneurship and innovation in the city.
