Free Wikipedia Access to Orange Subscribers in Kenya

Orange subscribers in Kenya will now enjoy free Wikipedia access through their internet-enabled mobile phones.
The service is in line with a partnership signed in January between Wikimedia Foundation and mobile operator, Orange, where over 10 million Orange subscribers in Africa and the Middle East (AMEA) are set to receive free access to the online encyclopedia.
The service is slated to roll out across 20 countries in Africa and the Middle East, with Kenya becoming the second country in Africa after neighboring Uganda to benefit from it.
An Orange subscriber will only need his Orange SIM card and an internet-enabled phone to access Wikipedia services as many times as he likes at no extra charge as long as he stays within Wikipedia’s pages.
The service is available in all the 285 languages offered by the multilingual internet encyclopedia, including Kenya’s commonly used Swahili and English.   
Wikipedia is also planning to soon introduce a feature that will allow users get notifications when they log on the paid pages.
