New Delhi: Telecom services provider, Aircel, on Wednesday launched nationally a new service – Facebook for All – which provides its new customers free access to the social networking platform's app, messenger and mobile version for a period of 60 days.
Under this offer, all new customers will get free 50 MB per month data on Facebook. Once they get past the 50 MB usage mark, they have the option of using FB on their phones at 2 paise per 10KB. On the other hand, Aircel's existing customers will get free 50 MB data for 30 days for Facebook access.
“Aircel has positioned itself as a data leader by constantly innovating products and services aimed at redefining user experience, especially the youth. Over 75 million people access Facebook through their mobile phones in India and more than 60 per cent of Aircel customers who have data enabled handsets consume Internet on their phones. Considering this trend, the launch of the ‘Facebook for All' service is a strategic and natural step to re-iterate our commitment towards increasing data proliferation and usage of Internet in the country,” Anupam Vasudev, Chief Marketing Officer, Aircel, said.
