He could have hike d the charges of browsing because there was no internet hot spot around but he saw no need since he wanted to help the community to develop.

We benefited a lot from the cheap internet use and one of my friend applied for a job online and he managed to do te interview, mailed it to the relevant authority and later he secured the job and for that he bought Stephen extra computer which was much needed because of the high demand for the internet services.
