Dear Mark, while you’re in Delhi, I’d like to share a small piece of India’s history: We called it, “License Raj”.: "So here’s my humble appeal: If you want to make the internet free for everyone by all means do it. Do it by paying a small part of their bill. Hell, why not provide 10Mb per month to every subscriber who doesn’t buy an internet pack?
Because let’s face it what else will they do on the internet but log on to Facebook? You already account for 20% of all time spent online globally. If you keep improving your product and create some positive sentiment by essentially being a benevolent creator of access, that share will only go up.
I know it’s seductive to think about going after 100% of the next 2 billion.
But when you do, be sure to remember the License Raj." 'via Blog this'
