Yes, but I really don't see that giving people a free mobile SIM would
do that.  Or, at least, not any more than recommending they do
anything other than walk to DebConf.  I don't know of any
trains/planes/bicycle manufacturers which we can guarantee only use
free software, but we currently don't see it as breaking our
principles to recommend using their products, or to use Debian funds
to pay for their use.
