Facebook Messenger
It would be interesting to know if the FREE access includes Facebook Messenger app too. Through Facebook messenger app people will be able to easily communicate with their friends and family for free. Will the mobile operators like this ?

Great work
This is inspiring work from Facebook, the internet should be a basic right, as you say, and one day I hope the world achieves this goal, with Facebook's help.Giving Internet access to people, can enable them to learn, create, and pull themselves and their local area out of poverty.
