I’d like to refer some articles, these are just a few that has been noted. However please have a look at the brookings report as well: <>

It is actually good to look at stats and reality. Again as i said before the philosophy of the policy brought forward is a fact that we cannot turn our back from, but we as the community need to see what and how best interest we can support ourselves and not let governments decide on what we as a right to information get through the internet or not. We are all reasonable people who understand challenges. Since the UN classifies Internet as a human right we should act but i would not necessarily act and use the heavy duty artillery in the policy but am sure we can collectively find something that can work in the right way.
