WaPo: Facebook is talking to the White House about giving you ‘free’ Internet. Here’s why that may be controversial.
It didn’t work in India and now he wants to try it here? Oh, Mark. From the Washington Post:
Facebook is talking to the White House about giving you ‘free’ Internet. Here’s why that may be controversial.. “The social media giant is trying to determine how to roll out its program, known as Free Basics, in the United States without triggering the regulatory scrutiny that effectively killed a version of the app in India earlier this year. If Facebook succeeds with its U.S. agenda for Free Basics — which has not been previously reported — it would mark a major victory for the company as it seeks to connect millions more to the Web, and to its own platform.”
