All smartphone apps and services will now run on free internet from Facebook, Zuckerberg
Zuckerberg is now trying hard to bring to life his pet project called Internet.org, which is an effort to provide free internet for apps and services that tie up with Facebook. However, telecom operators are completely against it.
In an attempt to acquire the market and create a plan for incredible profits in the coming future, Zuckerberg, in MWC 2015, announced his pet project called "Internet.org". He said that it will support all apps that tie up with Facebook and will make it sure that these apps do not consume any internet bill from your pocket. There are a lot of things to consider, like for example, the customers will now lose the freedom of selecting any telecom operator of their choice and will have to resort to the default one which Facebook will have partnered with.
In India, Facebook has signed a contract with Reliance for offering free internet for its own app along with others. Not only telecom operators like Airtel and Vodafone who offer comparatively much better and premium services were in total disagreement of this gesture from Zuckerberg. Companies like Telenor were also against this kind of monopoly. Somehow it is true that although people might experience deterioration in performance with a default operator, but still they would compromise when it comes to free internet for their preferable apps and services.
Another thing to consider is that this fun project will go against the market norms and ethics of having a monopoly and will curb users from their rights to better services and freedom in their selection. More than telecom operators it is those millions of people who might be affected by this concept of Internet.org. Nevertheless, this can be a real game changer.
