Indosat, member of the Ooredoo Group, today announced a partnership with Facebook to launch Internet.org initiative in Indonesia as part of the "Internet Tanpa Pulsa Untuk Semua" initiative by the operator. The initiative will see Indosat providing easy access to critical information to all Indonesians, including useful health, education, social media for communication & news. The  service which will be available in English and Bahasa Indonesia is offered to both for IM3 & Mentari (pre-paid customers) and Matrix (post-paid customers) and can be accessed via the Internet.org app from the Android playstore. 

With the initiative, Indosat customers will get easy internet access to a set of services such as: getting general information on Ask.com & Wikipedia; getting news updates on Merdeka.com & KapanLagi; staying updated on sports through Bola.net; getting education info on Kelase; being able to check the weather and climate through Accuweather; enjoying stories via Wattpad; checking employment opportunities on Jobstreet; selling items on OLX & Tokopedia; learning about women's issues on sites like BabyCenter, MAMA, Girl Effect; and accessing health information on UNICEF's Facts for Life. And on top of these sites, customers may enjoy the services of Facebook.

Alexander Rusli, President Director and CEO of Indosat
Internet.org connects people with a new world of information including for health, education or even simply helping football fans stay up to date with their team's latest results.  It also helps people to communicate with relatives and friends, making it easier to stay in touch.  Indonesia's government has clear targets to bring more of our nation's people online including increasing wireless connectivity across the country while also making this connectivity affordable for the everyday person. 

Dr Nasser Marafih, Group CEO, Ooredoo
We are delighted to be the first to work with Facebook to launch this service in Indonesia.  With this partnership, once again Indosat has proved itself as a pioneer for our group.  In all of the markets that we operate in we are passionate about the benefits of connectivity and are always exploring new ways to help bring more people into the digital economy.  This partnership will contribute to bringing more of Indonesia's communities online and help people to achieve their aspirations for a better tomorrow.
