Affordable internet for everyone

Image how isolated would you be without internet access! And imagine that 20 countries are home to 75% of the 4 billion internet non-users worldwide today. But fortunately there is a solution! An eye-opening speech from our fascinating faculty, Isfandiyar Shaheen on TEDxDanubia, who is working on ensuring affordable internet for everyone on the Planet.

Asfi has a degree in mathematics from Franklin and Marshall College and loves modeling out how exponentially accelerating technologies will impact business solutions.
