TRAI has asked Reliance Communications to stop the Free Basics service of Facebook, for now.
“We have asked them (Reliance Communications) to stop it and they have given us a compliance report that it has been stopped”.
The notice was sent 2 weeks back, but Reliance is yet to stop the service. Reliance is Facebook’s first telecom partner in India to offer Free Basics to its subscribers.
In the last 2 weeks, Facebook has been several tricky and unethical means to garner support for Free Basics (a.k.a Internet.org), while the truth remains that Free Basics is a walled-garden approach and will kill innovation and freedom Internet brings.
