      digital equality, the Save Free Basics campaign page provides users with a
      pre-written response to Trai, saying the initiative could connect a billion
      Indians online. The pre-written message says that over a billion Indians would
      be hurt by the shutting down of its Free Basics program.

    • “Hundreds of
      millions of people in India
      use the Internet every day and understand the benefits it can bring. This
      campaign’s goal is to give these people the opportunity to support digital
      equality in India,”
      a Facebook spokesperson said.

    • It will also help
      connect the billion who remain offline by giving them a voice in the public
      debate that is being held by Trai on differential pricing for data services,
      the spokesperson added.
    •  
    • The Web form has a
      ‘Send Email’ submit button that lets Facebook send user responses, names and email
      addresses to Trai. It also works in incognito, so the user doesn’t have to be
      signed to Facebook to support the campaign, according to the report.
    •  
    • Trai issued a new
      consultation paper on differential pricing for data services on December 9,
      inviting comments by December 30.
