Zuckerberg Says Net-neutrality Principles Not Relevant For Internet Access

By 03:51 Wed, 28 Jul 2021 Comments

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has assumed that net-neutrality principles are not relevant for Internet access. He made the comment at a conference hosted by Vanity Fair magazine.

"If an operator wants to advantage their own video program and charge more for Netflix, then that is bad," he said, adding that "if you’re a student in India and you’re getting access to some basic tools to do your homework for free and you can learn some more, it’s really hard to see how that is hurting anyone."

He also pushed for universal Web access, saying that it is one of the “fundamental challenges of our generation.”

This comes just a couple of weeks after the social networking company changed the name of its Internet.org app to Free Basics. For the uninitiated, Facebook’s Internet.org initiative aims to bring affordable Internet to the 5 billion people in the world who otherwise can’t access it. However, the initiative has been facing net-neutrality concerns.
