It allows people to browse selected health, employment and local information websites without data charges. The app is currently available to Airtel customers in Zambia and Kenya, as well as Tigo customers in Tanzania. It will continue to expand to other parts of the world.Learn more.

Apps for the Entire World
The Internet.org Innovation Lab, an Ericsson-Facebook collaboration, was designed to help developers understand how their apps will work in different parts of the world. The lab’s elaborate test environment mimics a variety of network conditions, giving developers a way to ensure their apps will run even in very remote areas.Learn more.
Developers will be able to start using the lab, located at Facebook’s Menlo Park, California headquarters, beginning this summer.Contact the lab.
