Facebook's Free Internet Service Must Be Suspended

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India has ordered the suspension of Facebook's free internet service until further notice.

Over the past week Facebook has launched an email campaign calling on users in India to save Free Basics, which launched in India last month with local partner Reliance Communications and provides free access to select internet services, including news, maternal health, travel, local jobs, sports, communication, and local government information. According to a local report, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has now ordered Reliance Communications to suspend the service.
