People in India lost the chance to get selected internet service for free.
#TRAI has denied the same considering the mass petition they received against it.
Free Basics would have given free Internet access to everyone in India and it could have been a big revaluation to the Indian internet users, today the internet usage is limited to privileged users, with freebasic those unprivileged could have been getting an access to the basic for free.
Sadly a trend has developed in India, that oppose anything and everything you will get a bunch of idiots to follow you and make it sensational.
As far as i know here, we have #Tigo is giving freebasic and a lot of people are enjoying absolutely free service.
Yes I understand Facebook will have their own interest in it, but remember there is no real "free" lunch anywhere.
