Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) shows complete disagreement with a DoT panel’s report in India which suggests that Internet.Org is not in compliance with the net neutrality principle. To justify further the company clarifies that though the app provides the users with access to only some websites it does not blocks the other sites.
Facebook is making efforts to gather maximum support of its users for Internet.Org as now there is very little time left in DoT panel to present the public opinion on its report. As a part of its campaign Facebook is connecting with its users in India via messages to know their viewpoint on provision of free basic internet service for every person.
Once Facebook successfully gathers enough public support it would make its way to the courts for keeping Internet.Org functional in India. The DoT panel report on net neutrality which says Internet.Org fails to establish is made available on My Gov website for the people to comment on. Till now the report has received very insignificant views as compared to the messages sent which numbered in lakhs as part of the campaign to establish net neutrality in India.
Facebook suggests that Internet.Org is launched to provide internet access even to those who cannot afford to pay for it, the company has no intentions to violate the net neutrality principle.
he Facebook users in India have received messages from Facebook in which they are interrogated that whether they support free internet in India for all the people to use. The message further directs them to make a comment to declare their support for the free basic internet cause so that their voice could be raised up to the government level.
Some members of the Indian cabinet also have their Facebook pages including the Indian Prime Minister. The DoT panel report would be receiving comments and reviews till mid August.
