Free Basics is an application developed by Facebook as part of the Internet.org initiative, which aims to provide anyone with free and unrestricted access to a series of ‘basic’ web pages, such as AccuWeather, BBC News, ESPN, UNICEF , Dictionary.com or Facebook itself.
The possibility of accessing or all of these web pages for free will depend directly on the country in which we are located and the telephone provider we have. That is, we will need to have a valid telephone number, and we will need our telephone provider to be part of the initiative. If we meet these requirements, we can access all the web pages mentioned without charge.
Free Basics by Facebook is an application with a very positive idea: allow everyone to access undoubtedly useful web pages, whether or not they have money to pay the data rate.
