Kenya will become the third African country, after Tanzania and Zambia, to get free internet from Facebook, according to a message posted on Internet.org below
Today Internet.org reached a special milestone. With our announcement in Kenya this morning, free basic internet services will soon be available to more than 100 million people worldwide.
We still have a lot of work ahead to make Internet.org available everywhere and to help 5 billion people connect and use the internet, but our recent launches in Kenya, Tanzania and Zambia are a good start.
Kenya already has a thriving startup ecosystem and the internet is already making a big impact, with millions of people using services like mobile banking over SMS. To fulfill this country’s full potential, we need to help everyone connect.
Free basic services in education, health and communication will give everyone the tools to live better lives.
