Facebook Launches Free Internet App In Africa by adewasco2k(m): 2:02pm On Aug 03, 2014
Facebook has just revealed its first mobile app that will help Africans get online free via its initiative internet.org which was launched last year to help developing countries have access to cheap internet.

The initiative is first releasing its first app in Zambia, the app is currently android base, it gives free access to cool internet base web services totally free.
The app will allow users have access to online web services like:

• Wikipedia
• Google search
• Facebook
• AccuWeather
• Go Zambia Jobs
• Kokoliko
• MAMA (Mobile Alliance for Maternal Action)
• Messenger
• WRAPP (Women’s Rights App) and
• Zambia uReport

Facebook’s boss said in his post that “Right now, only 15% of people in Zambia have access to the internet. Soon, everyone will be able to use the internet for free to find jobs, get help with reproductive health and other aspects of health, and use tools like Facebook to stay connected with the people they love.”

But currently the free internet access will be for only Airtel Africa customers in Zambia.
Nigerians will be waiting patiently for this awesome service.

I think Globacom will be the best company to partner with Facebook on this initiative in Nigeria, what do you guys think?

if its ot fast in your area doesn't mean it is not everywhere

if you want to rate Nigerian;s major mobile internet providers judging by speed

1. Etisalat
2. GLO
3. MTN
4. Airtel

i might though be a little be bias in my rating owing to the fact that i person like GLO as some people will say MTN is faster than GLO (i know its close but i will still choose GLO wink )

also this is not just a rating base on my location but collective data from different states, and areas.
