In order to achieve the aim of providing the Internet facility to each house in India, Aircel has expanded its ‘Free Basic Internet’ service to Jammu and Kashmir. Also, the telco unveiled new 3G data packs in the same circle.

With the new Free Basic Internet service, Aircel offers free access to  e-mails, instant messengers for text messages and some basic websites with a downlink speed up to 64 kbps.

“We firmly believe that Internet is for all and through our constant efforts of innovating products and services, we aim to make Aircel a gateway to the Internet for many,” Aircel’s Regional Business Head for North, Anil Gupta said. The service was first introduced at Tamil Naidu region and later launched in Chennai.

The Free Basic Internet service sounds like ‘Free Basics by Facebook’ but in reality both of the platforms are totally different. As Aircel is just offering free low-speed Internet access to its subscribers without any discrimination. However, the problem with Free Basics by Facebook is that it only allows access to few websites, which are under control of the social media giant.
