Following recent visit of Deepti Doshi, who is looking after Strategic Partnership at Facebook, Internet.org, free internet service of Facebook, will be launched in Bangladesh on 21st April, 2015. Internet.org, which is now has a mobile app along with website, offers free internet service for selected websites.

Last month Deepti Doshi wrote in her Facebook status that, great things are happening by using power of internet in Bangladesh. Internet has become a medium to inform, connect and empower people to do great works and contribute to the society. The service will be available to mass people to use within few days from now.

Among the selected sites for Bangladesh internet.org includes Facebook, Whatsapp, Social Blood, BBC news, Wikipedia and more. Mobile operator Robi has already launched the service under collaboration with Internet.org ahead of formal launch and other operators are expected to join soon.
