Airtel Zero Violates Vital Net Neutrality

Comments Off on Airtel Zero Violates Vital Net Neutrality 15

Bharti Airtel, India’s biggest telecom player, has launched a scheme that allows free internet access for a few select mobile applications. This violates net neutrality (NN), or equal treatment by the internet service provider of all types of content online.
The move bestows privileged access on certain content providers, while others make do with costlier, if not degraded, net access. It needs to be nipped in the bud. The telecom regulator Trai needs to move fast, and bar such offerings till it finalises its policy on NN, on which it has issued a consultation paper, whose logical outcome should be to institute NN as official policy in India, as the Federal Communications Commission has notified it as the US’ official policy.
