Facebook Zero is a mobile website created by Telecel Zimbabwe that allows its subscribers zero rated access to the social network even when they have no airtime. Launched in May 2014, the service is accessible to any prepaid telecel subscriber with a data enabled handset.[1] The platform includes all the key features of Facebook but is optimised for speed with zero data charges. The suite be accessed through three addresses, namely zero.facebook.com, 0.facebook.com or o.facebook.com and is supported on default browsers and Opera Mini (proxy browser). The subscribers using the platform can send and receive chat messages, browse a newsfeed and view a friend’s timeline without images or videos. They can post comments, update statuses, like posts, poke friends and send and reply to messages, all for free.[2] Subscribers will only be charged for images, video clips and third party sites they choose to view. 11 cents per megabyte will be charged for those who subscribe to data bundles.
