BSNL users can now access Facebook on mobile without internet


BSNL users will be charged Rs 4, Rs 10 and Rs 20 for 3 days, weekly and monthly plans, respectively, the company said in a statement.

The public sector telecom firm has tied up with U2opia Mobile to provide Facebook access through USSD in East and South zones immediately and shortly the service will be launched in West and North zones.

Unstructured supplementary service data (USSD) technology is used by telecom operators to send alerts to their users. It can be used for pre-paid call-back service, location-based content services and menu-based information services.

BSNL said Facebook for USSD enables users to access their accounts, view/post status messages, respond to friend requests, write on friends’ walls, view birthday reminders and send messages without any Internet or data connection.
