Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Wednesday went into damage-control mode following a tweet from board member Marc Andreessen about India and colonialism. Andreessen was reacting to the Indian telecom regulator's ban on Facebook's Free Basics service. "Another in a long line of economically suicidal decisions made by the Indian government against its own citizens," he reportedly tweeted. "Denying world's poorest free partial Internet connectivity when today they have none, for ideological reasons, strikes me as morally wrong."

I have yet to hear a convincing case for rejecting FREE Internet-lite .... and no, righteous blowhards pontificating do not count.

These people objecting to keep progress away from a common man are the ones truly stuck into old colonialism ... because they can afford to have access to it they want to keep their advantage.

FREE or nothing stance is an absolutely stupid stance. There are never any free lunches in this world ... every Indian knows it ... people opposing this are the ones who are pretending to be guardians of Net Neutrality while keeping it away from the masses who otherwise won't have access to it.
