So TRAI has announced Net Neutrality to govern the future of internet in India. Unfortunately for all those people who followed the herd and joined the Free Basics campaign by Facebook, you are headed for a blind end because Facebook’s initiative in India for a free internet plan has gone kaput. Exactly a year ago when FCC announced a similar decision in US, Verizon went hysteric with its morse code press release rubbishing the law. India thankfully does not have any such repercussions from the telco biggies. But the common people in India could just not let this opportunity to troll people go off their hand right?
While we realized that the office of Rahul Gandhi, complete with its PR agency, wins on this one solemn occasion because Junior Gandhi did once speak in support of Net Neutrality in India, we also came across some great trolls from the twitteratti.
