First National Bank’s internet service provider, FNB Connect, has announced an extension to its free Facebook and Twitter access (between 19h00 and 23h00 seven days a week) to South African learners visiting certain educational web sites.

“FNB views the role education plays in our society as critical and with many young South Africans preparing for matric exams and focusing on higher education, we believe that this offering will further empower learners with critical information," says Zanele Hadebe, marketing head of FNB Connect.
FNB clients can register for a FNB Connect data surf account for R69,00 and get 1Gb of preloaded data allowing them to access not only the world’s two biggest social networking sites (Facebook and Twitter) but to use the Internet for revision and study purposes without touching the 1Gb data bundle.
FNB Connect data users can also surf all FNB sites without incurring data costs.
