Browsing free on the internet? How? I asked myself. I finally figured out the possibility of that. Let me not bug you with what happens behind the scene of it. Just know that Facebook is partnering with several telecoms company around the world to make this a reality. Thanks to Airtel, they are so in it for now, I believe others will join soon. Head now to play store and download “free basics” by facebook. Browse Facebook, fb chat, wikipedia, nairaland, etc without any data on your phone with this app.
The Manifestation of the Free #internet4all is now here, and is real.
Over 85% of the world’s population lives in areas with existing cellular coverage, but mobile data is expensive and hard for people to justify when they haven’t experienced the benefits of the internet. By partnering with mobile operators, people experience the knowledge and inspiration that comes from access to basic websites, for free.
If you are a mobile operator, partner with Internet.org to connect the unconnected.
