Orange teams up with Wikimedia Foundation to forge mobile and internet partnership

23 Apr 2009

France Telecom (Orange) and the Wikimedia Foundation today announced a wide-ranging strategic partnership designed to ‘mutually benefit each organisation’s users by extending the way people can access free knowledge’. Under the deal the two parties hope to expand the reach of Wikimedia content through co-branded channels on Orange’s mobile and web portals. The partners will work together to develop new services and features around content from Wikipedia, the flagship project of the Wikimedia Foundation. Orange will initially provide customers in France, the UK, Spain and Poland with quick and simple access to co-branded content from the Wikimedia Foundation, the non-profit organisation behind the web encyclopaedia Wikipedia.
