Net Neutrality

What is Net Neutrality?

Net neutrality is the principle that Internet service providers and governments should treat all data on the Internet equally, not discriminating or charging differentially by user, content, site, platform, application, type of attached equipment, or mode of communication.


On 10 February 2015, Facebook launched Internet.org in India with Reliance Communications. It aims to provide free access to 38 websites through an app. Only Bing was made available as the search engine. Sunil Mittal, CEO of Bharti Airtel, criticised the concept and said, "If you are going to make the data free, then let's do completely philanthropic projects. Government must make spectrum free, there should be free network, but it is not happening."

On 27 March 2015, TRAI released a consultation paper on over-the-top services (OTT) and net neutrality for public feedback.
In April 2015, Airtel announced the "Airtel Zero" scheme. Under the scheme, app firms will sign a contract and Airtel will provide the apps for free to its customers. The reports of Flipkart, an e-commerce firm, joining the "Airtel Zero" scheme drew negative response. People began to give the one-star rating to its app on Google Play..Following the protest Flipkart decided to pull out of Airtel Zero. The e-commerce giant confirmed the news in an official statement, saying, "We will be walking away from the ongoing discussions with Airtel for their platform Airtel Zero.,

A Member of the Parliament from Odisha, Tathagata Satpathy, wrote an open letter to TRAI in support of net neutrality. The Communication and Information Technology Minister, Ravi Shankar Prasad, on 7 April said that a committee will be formed to study the net neutrality issue.[33] Rajeev Chandrasekhar, a Member of the Parliament, had also supported net neutrality.[34] The Competition Commission of India (CCI) chairman, Ashok Chawla, said that they were examining whether these practices were unfair.[35] The Department of Telecommunication also said that they were investigating the matter.
On 11 April 2015, the YouTube channel All India Bakchod uploaded a video titled "Save The Internet" which urged people to email TRAI demanding net neutrality. The video was reshared on Twitter by various Indian actors.

I agree with the OTT and the TRAI part but I think that airtel zero is totally another idea and it took a hit just because of the timing. Airtel zero is just ablout the company (eg flipkart) paying for data when we visit their app or website.


Is it just not like a big shop-keeper offering a cab for free for ferrying you to his shop though this harms the small shopkeepers but it is accepted.
OR (owing to the tons of analogies popping over internet ;-) )


Like the toll free numbers where they pay for you call when you contact them.


Overall I dont think Airtel Zero is violating Net neutrality :-h

Hmmm I would like to argue on this with a simple use case
Consider that facebook, twitter, flipkart, snapdeal, amazon, jbong, and any other site which an internet user commonly use are provided for free by telecom providers. Will the user ever go for a  data recharge to access other sites....I don't think so....its the same concept of using the freebies so that you are shut out from the innovation. Like telling a person that I will provide you food and shelter and everything you need you don't need to work or got out.


Net should remain neutral in my opinion and I would urge our members to seriously  think about this and support the cause.


Regards,
Lalit

Airtel zero plan does not violate the net neutrality.
The problem is not with net neutrality...the problem is attitude of app developers.
The app developers are afraid of their shrinking territory.
They know if Airtel comes with at least 100 free apps then lots of user won't choose any app beyond these 100 free apps. Anything beyond those 100 free apps will be rejected by user.
This isn't violating net neutrality but this is something which has induced fear among lots of app developers.
And so they are trying to pressurise telecom industry to abondon this plan.

This is something unethical. It is equivalent to say  "since robots will one day replace manual human labours in industry. So stop creating robots".
Stopping Airtel from implementing its idea by signing petitions is completely illegal and undemocratic. Innovation always wipes off something. May be this time the innovative idea of telecom industry is about to wipe off app developers from indian industry.

The petition format is something that appears like a big cheat...
The moment I open it, it asks me to send an email that contains answers of 118 ques answered by me. I was like "fuck! When the hell I answered those 118 ques! I was waiting for ques to pop up on screen but instead of ques...I am asked to forward an email which contains answers written by someone else".
This is seriously like misleading people.
Nobody is going to read those lengthy 118 answers prepared by some anonymous people.
People will just send the email because it says "save the internet".

Justice denied anywhere diminishes justice everywhere.

How is Airtel Zero any different from Internet[dot]org?
The former gets abused while the latter backed by Facebook gets applauded for taking internet to millions of people who cant pay for internet. Why?
Both have the same principle, where certain apps wont get their data usage charged, while other apps will be charged on pay per use basis.

There is confusion regarding internet[dot]org that who pays for user facebook  or the site which is being accessed eg NDTV, i tried to search but couldn't find any answer. In airtel's case it is clear that company pays for user for accessing it's website.


Though both are same but the way it was shown in media was different and so was the perception.

Why the Net Neutrality is important:

If Net Neutrality will gone then network providers will charge whatever they want for a single site.
If the Net Neutrality will gone for forever then you might soon will see something like this:



Let's say you have a small bussiness online, and you are writing ads, trying to reach more customers and targeting good keywords.
Your customer clicks an ad and their network provider throttle down the speed and the page won't load up.Then you have wasted,time and your efforts,
What I'm trying to say is that it will shrink the small businesses.

Without Net Neutrality we won't see the success stories like Google,facebook,because Net Neutrality helped them to grow.

I am not against the zero internet but it should be exist in the same world as it is now.The Net Neutrality should be remain like now for forever.

the principle that Internet service providers should enable access to all content and applications regardless of the source, and without favouring or blocking particular products or websites.
