Facebook, Nokia, Samsung, Qualcomm and others created Internet.org to help in bringing web connectivity to under served areas around the world.
Since the start of the collaboration between these companies, Internet.org has launched in Zambia and Tanzania, the latter being one of Africa’s most populated countries.
Unconfirmed reports indicate that in a month’s time, Internet.org’s app which provides free access to variety of different services will also be available in Kenya.
Techcrunch points out, Airtel customers in that area can start using AccuWeather, BBCNews, Facebook, Facebook Messenger, Wikipedia, as well as other sites and communication tools, at no cost to them.
Kenya, Tanzania and Zambia are only the first three countries to benefit from this initiative — ultimately, Internet.org aims to blanket roughly 5 billion people altogether.
