Re: Net neutrality
People get free internet in return of having Facebook dominate the internet. This smell likes internet, more precisely like IE few years ago.

Re: Net neutrality
@danielcawrey,

I wonder which sites they don't allow traffic to?

Re: Net neutrality
This seems like an interesting test. It's like a free trial of the internet since it only offers access to certain websites. People will use this, and Facebook will cull the data in order to figure out how to best operate in emerging markets.

Net neutrality
No one appears to have objected to all of this on the basis of net neutrality -- I suspect because getting people online is seen as a bigger priority than worrying about privileged access. But you have to wonder about these deals as internet take-up grows. Any private-sector companies offering online information about local facilities in these Facebook markets can't be very happy an operator is providing free access to government websites but not to theirs.
