Over 4.5 million Filipinos have used the Internet.org app since it was launched in March, claims Talk ‘N Text (TNT), the prepaid brand of Philippines' Smart Communications. Smart became the first telco in Southeast Asia to roll out the Internet.org app, which provides Filipinos with free access to 30 websites offering informative and practical content, including Facebook and Messenger.
Both TNT and Facebook have been promoting the app under its ‘Panalo Ang May Alam’ campaign, and have since launched a Mobile Web Development Challenge for Filipino developers to create Internet.org-compatible websites and apps with specific needs.
Since 2014, Internet.org has rolled out in 14 countries, including Zambia, Tanzania, Kenya, Colombia, Ghana, India, Guatemala, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Malawi, Pakistan, Senegal, and most recently in Bolivia, making the app available to over 1 billion people so far.
