Karissa Bell says, “Mark Zuckerberg took to Facebook to defend Internet.org against claims the program conflicts with net neutrality, saying the two principles “can and must coexist.”

In the lengthy post, Facebook’s founder and CEO said he supports net neutrality and reiterated the value of providing Internet access — even if it’s limited — to people in developing countries.

Zuckerberg’s remarks come just days after Internet.org made headlines when a number of prominent Indian companies withdrew their support for the program. Internet.org is Zuckerberg’s wide-ranging plan to bring Internet access to developing countries where the majority of the population may not yet be online”.
