If you have a zero-rated website or app that you would like to have listed here, email us at info@datafree.co.

WARNING: The zero-rated websites listed here may not use our proprietary #datafree technology and we are not responsible for their operation or content.

What is #datafree?

When an app or website is #datafree it means NO DATA is taken from your airtime or data bundle balance.

We have arrangements with mobile network operators in South Africa, Nigeria, Cameroon, Zambia and Uganda so our advertisers can pay for the mobile data that you use.

These networks are MTN, Vodacom, Cell C and Telkom in South Africa; MTN and Airtel in Nigeria; and MTN in Cameroon, Zambia and Uganda.
