Thomas John believes as of today, in India, the internet is not an essential service that people cannot live without. “We feel as far as India is concerned, the internet will have a more organic growth and spread based on the value the end user is deriving from it. The only way we could give it free of cost is by combining it with something such as advertising which would indirectly benefit the user and for which he/she does not have to pay,” Thomas John has told Business Line.
