Vodacom Lesotho has partnered with Facebook to launch Facebook Flex, which is a connectivity service allowing people to stay connected with news all free of charge...
Vodacom Lesotho’s managing director, Philip Amoateng said, “We at Vodacom are extremely passionate about giving Basotho the best possible tools for them to lead successful and fulfilling lives, using our network and the tools we can provide, to make their lives easier.
“This partnership is one of the many ways in which we hope to achieve that. In the face of blinding unemployment rates, hundreds of thousands of Basotho have found ways to build thriving businesses that use the power of Facebook.
“Thousands more have developed and built meaningful relationships in Lesotho and outside to further enrich their lives. We are excited about the prospect that this partnership will allow us to reach even further down the economic chain and encourage more Basotho to get onto the Facebook platform, and more importantly to become first-time users of the internet.”
In August 2018Vodacom Group said it created “Africa’s first standards-based, commercial 5G service in Lesotho”, using its assigned 3.5GHz spectrum to initially deliver Fixed-Wireless Access broadband services to two local enterprises.
