Facebook introduces free basic internet services to Airtel customers in Zambia

In a recent and very welcome development, Airtel will be providing free basic internet services to the people in Zambia as a part of Facebook’s Internet.org app, which Facebook has created to increase the penetration of internet in places where affordability is a major issue even though mobile services are available.
