Zuckerberg says Philippine telco’s initiative is a model for more connected communities

At Mobile World Congress in Barcelona yesterday, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg stated that the number of people in the Philippines using mobile web connections has doubled since Facebook’s partnership with local telco Globe Telecom started. Last October, Globe started giving subscribers free access to Facebook through their mobile phones. This was a partnership the telco and Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) inked as part of Zuckerberg’s Internet.org initiative to get more people connected to the Internet.
