Imperialism or charity?

View from the PorchBut what happens when an American company offers free trial internet access to Indians? IMPERIALISM!

Both sides have a good point here.

This is a classic case of looking the trojan horse in the mouth. The "Internet Access" being offered is limited, basically, to Facebook itself and perhaps a few other sites. That's clearly a self-interested offer to gain market share. On the other hand, it's free, and the people taking the offer probably have no affordable alternatives (or if they do, can take those alternatives instead of the limited free offering).
