Facebook is planning to come on every phone and the company has started working on it by coming on U.S. phones without data plans.
According to The New York Times reports, T-Mobile’s GoSmart Mobile, a low-cost offshoot offering prepaid services, will start giving free access to Facebook’s social network and instant-messaging service with almost all of its mobile plans and services.
“This is something that no one else is offering in the United States,” said Gavin Dillon, T-Mobile’s vice president of partner brands, in an interview on Tuesday. “It’s really about providing more value for GoSmart’s cost-conscious customers.”
“Facebook’s mission is to give people the power to share and make the world more open and connected, and we’re delighted that GoSmart subscribers, many who don’t have data access, will be able to use Facebook for free,” Chris Daniels, vice president of partnerships at Facebook, said in a statement.
However, according to the report, this would have minimal effect on Facebook usage but this would show the ambition of the company to bring people of the world online.
