You can connect to Facebook and other websites free of charge using a SIM card from the qualifying mobile operator. Keep in contact with friends and family, hunt for jobs, have a look at sports and news updates, and get health information — without data charges.
Free Basics comprises websites like:
- BabyCenter & mama
- BBC News
Facebook is a part of this Internet.org initiative. We’re working together with mobile operators around the world to make Free Basics widely available.
All these cellular operators have agreed to not charge you for the data used to navigate. Data used outside, including but not restricted to any minimum balance requirements and texting costs, can still result in standard rates and charges from your mobile operator.
