Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has invited citizens of India to give their opinions on ‘Net Neutrality’ in India. For those who are not familiar with the term, Net Neutrality, here is a brief – “The term, coined by Tim Wu underlies the basic principle that has led to the success of internet- businesses that operate the network may not discriminate between different data packets”, according to The Economic Times. True example, Telecom Operators nowadays have special internet packs for Facebook, Whatsapp or any other particular website or application for mobile phone users which is a kind of discrimination between data packets over internet. A few days ago, an update came out that TRAI may regulate OTT services. Regulation of Over-the-top (OTT) services is somehow linked with Net Neutrality. Internet, which is probably the cheapest medium to share information or to communicate over large distances may not be same as it is now in next few years. Telecom Service Providers (TSPs) claim that OTT services such as Whatsapp, Line, WeChat, Viber, Skype, FB Messenger etc. work on the architecture set up by them and earn big amounts which obviously is affecting their revenue. TSPs wish the revenue earned by OTT services must be shared. What will happen if principles of Net Neutrality are not followed? Just for an example, if Net Neutrality is ignored by the Telecom Service Providers, then the mobile internet packs will be perhaps in this form, ₹200 for 1GB + ₹50 for Google + ₹30 for Facebook. That won’t be all, resourceful websites will perhaps join forces with the Telecom Service Providers to provide high speed particularly for their websites and low for their competitors. Things may get worse if internet loses Net Neutrality. Till now, there are no guidelines set up by TRAI or government to look upon the internet services provided by Telecom Service Providers and OTT services in India. Net Neutrality is an issue of prime concern in many countries including India. Though a majority of consumers would be in favor of Net Neutrality but companies like IBM, Intel, Cisco, Dlink etc are against the its principles as they believe it would reduce innovation and investment in the broadband industry. The Federal Communication Commission (FCC) of Unites States ruled in favour of ‘Net Neutrality’ by reclassifying broadband access in the last week of February, 2015. There is no need to delve into technical aspects of OTT services and Net Neutrality for a common consumers. Every single user of Internet has played their role in its growth from the three decades. A country which has the worst average Internet speed in South East Asian region, where there is still a great scope of increasing and improving connectivity, internet penetration is being discussed over the quality of service (QoS). Telecom Service Providers must not just think of filling their pockets, instead of that they should provide quality internet services to their users, of which they are already charging more than required. Whereas TRAI and government have big roles to play by making such decisions which should benefit commoners more than rich businessmen as the FCC did in United States.
