Aircel teams up with Wikimedia Foundation to offer free access to Wikipedia on mobiles

By Religare

Country's leading telecom operator Aircel and Wikimedia Foundation on Thursday jointly announced to provide free access to Wikipedia for mobile users.

The new partnership will give 60 million mobile subscribers in India the potential to access Wikipedia at no data cost, bringing the program's global partnership footprint to 470 million subscribers.

Commenting on development, Wikimedia Foundation said, "Infrastructural and economic barriers in India have led to division of information access, but the proliferation of mobile - and programs like Wikipedia Zero - will change that."


The new initiative is to provide free access to knowledge for everyone in the world.
