While the French government once said that OTTs should pay for networks usage(here), its biggest carrier, Orange, is now offering new “affordable" phones with un-limited access to Facebook.
Compare this to the Movistar Colombia- in which Facebook is a premium service (here) - both MNOs are trying to set a low-cost entry point - Movistar with "old/simple" applications and Orange with a very attractive one. Probably both hoping to see the customers upgrading and using the other services or consume more.
