Unlimited Facebook and WhatsApp


    In this context, the Internet Brasil program emerges as a crucial initiative to provide free and unlimited connectivity to students in the public education network who are registered in the Cadastro Único for Social Programs of the Federal Government (CadÚnico).

    Unlimited Access Benefit

    The Internet Brasil program aims to provide chips with free Internet access to basic education students. This benefit not only facilitates access to online educational resources, but also allows unlimited use of communication platforms such as Facebook and WhatsApp.

    This continuous connectivity is vital to keeping students engaged and connected to the digital world. To be eligible, students must be enrolled in public schools and their families must be registered with CadÚnico.

    The distribution of chips is part of a larger effort to reduce the digital divide and promote equal educational opportunities.

    Program Expansion

    Recently, the program was expanded to include students from state education networks in several states, including Amapá, Bahia, Maranhão, Pará and Rio Grande do Norte.

    Initially, the program focused on public schools in the Northeast Region, but now its scope has grown to benefit students in other states. The expansion was formalized through Interministerial Ordinance MCOM/MEC No. 12,544/2024, signed by the Ministers of Communications and Education.

    This strategic move aims to ensure that more students can enjoy the benefits of free and unlimited Internet access, contributing significantly to school retention and educational development.

    Impact on Students’ Daily Life

    The impact of the Internet Brasil program is tangible in the daily lives of students. Lucas Gabriel Alves Caridade, a 13-year-old student from Uberaba (MG), shares how the free chip has facilitated his studies and research.

    Constant access to the Internet allows him to study more efficiently and in depth, without the need to leave home to use relatives’ Internet. This connectivity not only improves students’ academic performance, but also promotes greater autonomy and motivation to learn.

    Access to social platforms such as Facebook and WhatsApp at no additional cost also facilitates communication with colleagues and teachers, enriching the educational experience.

    Criteria and Procedures

    To receive the chip, students must meet some specific criteria. They must be attending primary school from the third year onwards or secondary school and be registered with CadÚnico. They must have a mobile device to use the chip and not have chips from other public policies.

    In addition, it is necessary to signal interest to the school and sign a membership agreement. This process ensures that the benefits are allocated to students who really need them and who are committed to the responsible use of the resource.

    The Internet Brasil program represents a significant step towards digital and social inclusion in Brazil. By providing free and unlimited Internet chips to students from low-income families, the government is investing in the country’s educational future.

    This benefit not only improves access to information and knowledge, but also promotes equal opportunities for all students, in addition to allowing access to important social networks, such as Facebook and WhatsApp.
