What do you think about Net Neutrality? – POLL

Net Neutrality has been one of the hottest topics on the Internet for the past 1 year. And tomorrow is going to be its D-day as far as India is concerned.

What do you think about Net Neutrality - size

What is Net Neutrality?
Before we delve any further, let’s understand what Net Neutrality means. It is a principle which states that the Internet must be accessible by every intended user. It is about treating all Internet traffic equally without prioritizing any Internet service such as websites, applications, etc. This means, every packet of data should be treated normally in terms of speed, cost and access rights.

What does going against Net Neutrality mean?
For instance, you have hired a cab to your office, and you ask the driver to play your favorite radio station. But, the driver insists on a extra fee to oblige your request. If you choose not to pay, then he will tune in to the station of his choice. So, this scenario is somewhat similar to the situation of going against Net Neutrality.

If Net Neutrality is abolished, then users (consumers and businesses) would have to pay extra for accessing certain websites and services. Basically, the Internet highway would be divided into fast and slow lanes. The service that pays more to your Internet Service Provider (ISP) will have a faster loading time than the ones who pay less or nothing at all. Hence, the Internet will no more remain free and open, which it is actually meant to be.

What’s happening in India?
Till now, the ISPs in India have been adhering to the principle of Net Neutrality. However, at the present time major telecom operators like Airtel and Vodafone are planning to implement policies that will go against the concept of Net Neutrality, as explained above. So, TRAI (Telecom Regulatory Authority of India) released a consultation paper on 27 March 2015, to get a public feedback; the deadline to submit the response is tomorrow, 24 April 2015. So, based on the responses received, TRAI may take a call on whether Internet usage should be regulated in India or not.

this means that According to ISP the one paying more money will have the access to all sites whether the ones paying less will be left with some websites fixed … so my opinion is that everyone should go with a “YES”.

if you are talking about no discrimination, then perhaps we should not discriminate other websites which do not pay the ISPs. If net neutrality is not abolished then some websites will have more traffic than others, right. how do you think then that there would be no discrimination?
It should be abolished.

Net neutrality is a necessity not a luxury.Net neutrality must not be abolished but should be adopted by the TRAI like countries like USA, Chile and Brazil have done. I personally request netizens to spread awareness among the people about this.

TRAI should leave it open the way it is. If it is working like freedom of the press why fix it. It is not broken. Why is it that the government always messes up a good thing? We already have too many regulations. As far as spectrum is concerned the telephone companies bid the prices based on the previous way the internet operated.Freely.No one held a gun to their heads.It has been free since the internet started. The whole concept of the internet is global freedom and free communication on the web. It would be a shame to make rules… Read more »

I feel the telecom companies should go ahead with their charges as people are going more online than enjoying their life.
Extra charges would demotivate them and encourage people to concentrate on their real life than on their virtual life.

very right,telecom companies should concentrate to increase speed and quality of internet in India rather then providing sub standard services to everyone.We will get more things done in less time although tariff should not be too high to afford.here i’m talking about homeusers not corporate sector which will not get effected by any price hike.

we are not in favor of paying extra. Sir, now if you will agree with companies then one days will be there where every site will have the tie ups with service providers and they will charge site wise. Example we are using frequently 15 sites in 28 days, but paying 177 for 28 days for any site. If you will go with companies then if they charge 10 Rs. per site for 28 days then we will only be able to use only these 15 sites not single one extra and this will be a dangerous reason of far… Read more »

To the Chairman, TRAI Thank you for giving me this opportunity to share my views on the consultation paper published by TRAI on March 27, 2015 titled “Regulatory Framework For Over-the-Top (OTT) Services”. I am worried that this consultation paper makes sweeping assumptions about the Internet, and does not take a neutral and balanced view of the subject of Internet Licensing and Net Neutrality. Any public consultation must be approached in a neutral manner by the regulator, so that people can form an informed opinion. I strongly support an open internet, for which I believe it is critical to uphold… Read more »
