AXIS [Indonesia] to Offer Low Cost Viber-only Data Packages

In an interview to the iPAD edition of Calcalist [here, Hebrew], founder and CEO of Viber, Talmon Marco, provided the magazine with more details about the VoIP provider recent agreement with AXIS (see also  AXIS and Viber agree on co-marketing partnership" - here).

"Last month, in Indonesia, Viber launched its first partnership with a cellular operator .. according to the agreement with AXIS, it will sell data plans allowing only the use of Viber .. it's a win-win play as most on the population does not have a cellular data plan, and Axis can offer a cheaper plan".

Facebook recently announced that Axis is one of 18 MNOs with which it has partnership "to provide free or discounted data access to Facebook messaging for their subscribers" (see "Facebook Offers Free Messaging Through 18 MNOs"- here).

All in the spirit of Net Neutrality, of course.
