Facebook (153.35, 1.97, 1.30%), along with the Uganda branch of Indian telecom giant Bharti Airtel and the Bandwidth & Cloud Services Group based in Mauritius, laid nearly 500 miles of fiber-optic cables in the remote northwest of Uganda.

The Uganda Fiber Project is the largest land network that Facebook has built in Africa.

 

Facebook hopes that about 3.8 billion people around the world who cannot use the Internet will also be able to use the Internet, and the Uganda project is part of this broader effort.

Currently, Facebook's user growth in developed markets such as the US and Europe is slowing.
