TRAI pulls Reliance Communication over Facebook’s Free Basics service
TRAI has asked Reliance Communications to put FB's Free Basic service on hold
New Delhi: Facebook's Free Basics, or Internet.org, is under criticism for violating net neutrality.
According to a report in Times of India, TRAI has asked Reliance Communications to put FB's Free Basic service on hold.
Reliance Communications is the sole telecom partner of Facebook in India to offer a set of basic internet services free to its subscribers.
TRAI is yet to form a view on whether Free Basics will conform to net neutrality.
Consultations are still on whether zero-rating plans by telecom service providers is discriminatory and anti-competitive, reportedly.
