Facebook is running a deceitful campaign to undermine Net Neutrality in India


The Internet is supposed to be a decentralised tool for the dissemination of information and provision of long distance communication abilities. You, for instance, can start a blog - for free - and make your views heard to over three billion people, just like you are now when visiting and reading this content.

Recently, A full two page ad in the most distributed daily and in many others http://imgur.com/yqDSv72 were published.

Similar hoarding in prime spots in Metro Cities can also be seen.

Facebook now to an extent is also Sending SMS's to people in regional languages.
ફેસબુક દ્વારા ફ્રી બેસિક્સ સેવા બધા માટે બુનિયાદી ઈન્ટરનેટ સેવાઓ નિશુલ્ક ઉપલબ્ધ કરાવે છે. પણ આ બધી સેવાઓ પર પ્રતિબંધ લાગવા ની આશંકા છે. કૃપા કરી 1800 209 0921 પર આજેજ એક મિસ્ડ કોલ આપી અમારી મદદ કરો.
Translation.
Free basics by Facebook provides basic internet services free, but these services may get banned. Please help us by giving a missed call today on this number.
Also prompting users to send a message to TRAI(Telecom regulatory authority of India) through their very platform. I wonder how much would other users have to pay to run such a campaign on FB. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CWfYxOfU4AACHA5.jpg

This is all being done to save their 'Free Basics' platform which infringes upon the principles of Net Neutrality.

We fought them off once, but Facebook is now pumping in a hell of a lot of money and utilizing the reach of their platform. We are still fighting, and www.savetheinternet.in is a good initiative which helps people mail the regulatory authority TRAI before the deadline on Dec 30.

Do support us by shaming Facebook globally for the underhanded tactics they are using here in India.
