Ooredoo Group’s Indonesian subsidiary Indosat and Facebook have jointly launched the Internet.org initiative in Indonesia. Facebook’s Internet.org seeks to make internet services more accessible through free internet access to a set of basic services, including health, education, social media for communication and news.
In Indonesia, Indosat will provide internet access at no charge through the Internet.org services both for IM3 & Mentari (prepay customers) and Matrix (postpaid subscribers). Customers will be able to access general information on Ask.com and Wikipedia; get news updates on Merdeka.com & KapanLagi; stay up to date on sports through Bola.net; get education info on Kelase; as well as check the weather and climate through Accuweather; read stories via Wattpad; check employment opportunities on Jobstreet; sell items on OLX & Tokopedia; learn about women’s issues on BabyCenter, Mama, Girl Effect websites; and access health information on UNICEF’s Facts for Life.
Indosat customers in Indonesia can access these services via www.internet.org or by downloading Internet.org app from the Android playstore. The service will be available in English and Bahasa Indonesia.
