Now it’s India’s turn to fight for net neutrality

Understanding net neutrality or what is net neutrality ?

Telecom operators/ISPs are access services providers, and can control either how much you access,
what you access, how fast you access and how much you pay to access content and services on the Internet. This is against net neutrality.

So people who support net neutrality beleive..
All sites must be equally accessible
The same access speed at the telco/ISP level for each (independent of telco selection)
The same data cost for access to each site (per KB/MB).

Why this debate in India now ?

On 27 March 2015, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) put up on its website a consultation paper in a quiet unannounced manner. The said consultation paper is titled “Consultation Paper On Regulatory Framework for Over-the-top (OTT) services”.

The said consultation paper was drafted in a manner wherein lot of questions was sought to be asked from specific perspectives. The said paper has since now been known in the public domain as Net Neutrality Consultation Paper of TRAI.

How is it Globally and in the US ?

US President Barack Obama came in support of Net Neutrality, urging the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to implement the strongest possible rules to protect net neutrality and ensure that “neither the cable company nor the phone company will be able to act as a gatekeeper, restricting what you can do or see online”.
