How to Access Free Internet using Internet.og ?
when we tried to access it from other network provider, we got an error like this –What are your views about this major change made by Facebook and Reliance? Isn’t it unfair free internet access for only reliance network customers? what will others do who are not on this network? will they have to buy Reliance SIM card for accessing free internet?. Comment down with your valuable suggestion/feedback 🙂
Well! From my side, I think its a good step taken by Facebook and RCOM to provide Free internet access. Also there will be increase in sales for RCOM 😉 Let’s see what happens next 🙂
