Free mobile Facebook bandwidth

The MTN Group today announced that it is launching 0.facebook.com, a mobile website that will allow its customers free mobile browsing on the new 0.facebook.com site.

The service will enable users to visit Facebook without incurring any data charges.

Facebook’s 0.facebook.com site is optimized for speed – it is a new faster, lightweight version of Facebook’s mobile site m.facebook.com. The site does not have graphics or photos, and 0.facebook.com’s pages have been designed for performance on MTN’s network.

Photos posted on Facebook are only one click away from 0.facebook.com, but standard data charges will apply when a person leaves 0.facebook.com to view photos.

Says MTN Group’s Chief Marketing Officer, Ms Santie Botha: “MTN has collaborated with Facebook on this venture to ensure our customers are among the first to benefit from this social service and communication offering for free.”

“We are always looking to work with innovative companies to provide simple and fast mobile access to Facebook across the world,” said Henri Moissinac, Head of Mobile Business, Facebook. “Thanks to our collaboration with MTN, people will now be able to access Facebook for free through 0.facebook.com.”
