FNB Connect to offer free Wikipedia browsing in the evening

Telecoms, Rates, Offers and Coverage

South Africa's FNB Connect says it will offer its ADSL customers free Wikipedia data browsing between 19:00 hrs and 23:00 hrs in a bid to assist pupils. This follows a plea from Grade 11 learners at Sinenjongo High School, Joe Slovo Park in Cape Town, to South African network operators, asking them to provide free mobile access to the research website.

According to the Internet Access in South Africa 2012 report from research house World Wide Worx, international bandwidth coming to South Africa is set to double in 2013, and South Africa's internet population is on track to reach 10 million users by the end of the year.
