Facebook starts increment in free internet services for mobile

In a blog post, Facebook said that it would open a portal, which allows free internet services in any mobile operator through the Internet.org platform. At this time, Facebook has already launched the services with some specific partners in different countries.

Chris Daniels (vice president of the product of Internet.org) said to the Reuters that in the last year Internet.org has brought over nine million people online. Facebook has also developed the platform of six technology partners to bring an estimated 4.5 billion people unconnected with the internet mainly in Latin America, Asia and Africa.

The offer includes the free web services for the users along with the access to Facebook’s own social network and messaging services.

Facebook’s blog post said that over the past year, the service had bought new users onto mobile networks on average over 50% faster and that more than half the people using Internet.org are paying for data to access the wider Internet within 30 days.

Daniels said that it is actually a customer-gaining tool for the mobile operators from where they can take more benefit by offering a low amount of free data to bring more paying subscribers to their networks.

The Internet.org app was launched in India in the month of February with the partnership of Reliance communications. They look reaction with a lot of foremost technology and Internet firms dragging out of the service after campaigners alleged it desecrated the values of an unbiased Internet.

Daniels said, “I would say India is unique in that respect and very much an outlier. In other markets, Internet.org has been embraced as a pro-connectivity initiative that has garnered a lot of support.”
