When Chang asked Zuckerberg if he had a better sense of when Internet.org would become profitable, he replied:

No, I don’t have a better idea. The reality is just that a lot people can’t afford to pay for data access in some of these areas; then they probably aren’t ad markets, and it’s probably not going to be a place where it’s going to be particularly profitable in the near term.
