About Free Basics
Free Basics is a joint initiative of Airtel and Facebook towards bridging the digital divide and building a knowledge-based society. Fueling affordable internet access to local and international content, which can act as key enablers to drive “Digital Nigeria” on the smartphone network.
Free Basics by Facebook provides people with access to useful services on their mobile phones in markets where internet access may be less affordable.
The websites are available for free without data charges, and include content on things like news, employment, health, education and local information. By introducing people to the benefits of the internet through these websites, they hope to bring more people online and help improve their lives.
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.
