I'm a telecoms engineer and unless you're going to start a monthly collection for me so I can pay my rent and have a comfortable standard of living, I wouldn't hedge on any kind of free internet. I'm pretty sure the response would be the same from my colleagues around me and in other companies and countries!
Alot of people are blissfully unaware of the sheer amount of work, time, energy and money it costs to keep the worlds Telecoms networks chugging over. It takes alot, let me assure you!
