As part of its ambition to provide ‘Internet for All’, Grameenphone is offering free Facebook browsing to all its customers.
 The offer, which is first of its kind in Bangladesh, is part of the run-up to the celebrations of 5 crore Grameenphone customers.
This was announced at a press briefing at Sonargaon Hotel in the city on Sunday.
Free Facebook browsing will be active for any data pack subscription starting from Monday until further notice. Under this offer, customers will be able to access Facebook without any data charge from 12am (midnight) till 6pm every day, on all devices. No specific registration or opt-in is required to enjoy the service.
“Grameenphone is approaching the significant milestone of 5 crore customers in Bangladesh. In the run-up to this occasion, we want our customers to enjoy free browsing of the most popular social media platform in the world. Facebook is the best platform to exercise social connectivity and also an important tool in our ambition of Internet for All,” said Allan Bonke, CMO of Grameenphone.
Facebook is the most trending social media service all around the world, connecting hundreds of millions of people across all communities worldwide. A similar trend is picking up in Bangladesh and a large number of internet users see Facebook as the primary online service.
As of today, over 110 million mobile connections exist in Bangladesh and an increasing number is also availing data services. Despite the steady growth in usage, a large part of the population is still unaware of the benefits that internet can bring.
“We believe there is no reason why anyone who has a voice connection cannot also be connected to the internet. With this campaign, we’re taking another step to make it simple and relevant for everyone to go online,” said Allan Bonke.
