Econet announces Econet Zero: free access to these 50+ educational websites

   

Today, Econet Wireless, announced the launch of a new product called Econet Zero, which extends their existing initiative; EcoSchool. Econet Zero gives all Econet subscribers free access to more than 50 educational websites.

Early this year MTN South Africa introduced free access to Wikipedia but Econet has pushed the envelope further and presenting the new product, Econet’s Darlington Mandivenga said Econet Zero is a world first.

The free websites being offered through Econet Zero are in 12 categories namely Early Education, MOOCs, Recorded Lectures, Test Prep, Books, Maths, Language learning, Programming, Music, How To’s, Random Knowledge and Research.

Local content? No there aren’t any local websites or platforms available with this free service but it’s fair to say Econet has already covered the local angle through free access to local university websites. In fact, Econet Zero covers the shortcomings of free access to University Websites because this offers little value because these websites little or no educational content.

The Econet Zero service is already active and below is a full list of the zero rated websites you can access at no cost – if you are an Econet Broadband subscriber of course.
