    Default Facebook's free Internet program shuts down in Egypt.

    Facebook is providing free Internet programs to over 30 countries around the world. Now Facebook has shutdown its free service in Egypt. Egypt was having around 3 million users to this program developed under Facebook's Internet.org branch.

    Even though it is quite uncertain about the exact reason for this development, it is said that this move of Facebook has something related to net neutrality and rising criticisms concerning Free Basics. India is the only other country who puts freeze on this program like Egypt.

    Does it have something to do with Freedom of Speech and censorship? I worked in Egypt for 3 years and I am so happy I am not working at it anymore. I do not think I will be able to live a day without checking my Facebook account.

    What do you mean by shut free service? Do you mean to say facebook is no more freely available, or you mean Egypt was receiving free internet from facebook which has been discontinued?
