India Introduces Net Neutrality Rules Barring Facebook's Free Internet

India's Telecom Regulatory Authority has blocked Facebook's Free Basics internet service as part of a net neutrality ruling. I'm not sure what is up with countries banning and blocking free internet but you know this has to be pissing off the powers that be at Facebook.

India introduced new rules on Monday to prevent Internet service providers from having different pricing policies for accessing different parts of the web, in a setback to Facebook Inc's plan to roll out a pared-back free Internet service to the masses.
