Tech giants meet at Mobile World Congress


Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg was the main guest at this year’s global mobile congress that opened Monday in Barcelona.

During his presentation, he regretted the absence of a comprehensive policy to facilitate access to the Internet in developing countries.

“It’s amazing that one is sitting here in 2016 and there are still four billion people worldwide who do not have access to internet,” he lamented.

In addition to presentations, the 2016 edition of the congress of mobile telephony is heavily connected to emerging digital and technological objects.

Experts at Barcelona explained that the Internet should deeply structure the market in the coming years.

Zuckerberg also announced a partnership with Samsung, adding both firms are working together on virtual reality and 360 video.
