According to a news agency, the alliance said that it will push for an open, competitive and innovative broadband market to boost access.

Not only British, US development agencies and Facebook but World Wide Web inventor, Tim Berners-Lee is also the part of this grand alliance.

"There is simply no good reason for the digital divide to continue. The real bottleneck now is anti-competitive policies and regulations that keep prices unaffordable. The alliance is about removing that barrier," Berners-Lee said in a statement.

The alliance aims to reduce the cost of internet access to below five percent of monthly income worldwide. In developed countries, people in 2012 spent average 1.7 percent of monthly income on broadband while in the developing world the figure was 30.1 percent, according to the new group.
