Wikipedia Zero GB

I give money to wikipedia every month, I’m not sure whether I should admit to that either as a history teacher (unreliable source and all that) or from the point of view of anonymous charity giving, but to me it remains the single greatest achievement in mankind’s history and a reason to celebrate our collective humanity. The site never fails to impress or excite me, as does the organisation. Most recently I’ve been amazed by the Wikipedia Zero initiative which is committed to providing access to wikipedia pages on mobile phones in some of the poorest countries in the world entirely for free. With over thirty countries already signed up the project shows how powerful a force for good in global education Wikipedia is. The question therefore arises which of the UK mobile providers will be first to capitalise on the publicity and make the same offer here?
