Why still crying for free Basic? At least for a person like, it matters a lot, I’m not someone who will just stick to some particular services for all my needs. And what’s the result of that? TRAI suddenly received thousands of emails from nowhere, so Facebook’s evil plan is working for sure. Also, there are a bunch of idiots out there on Facebook.
And this is what Facebook said
Hundreds of millions of people in India use the Internet every day and understand the benefits it can bring. This campaign gives people the opportunity to support digital equality in India.

Dear Mark Zuckerberg, as it looks you’re letting American people decide about #NetNeutrality in India, then I guess our…
