Re: "free data service that gets impoverished rural Indians online"

An amazingly biased, and factually unjustifiable statement.

and fwiw quite a number of India's rural poor have/ have access to a cellphone (probably not 'Smart') - that can provide weather, market/ crop prices - as sms (which costs ~ 50 paise).
