You Have Until April 24 To Ensure That You Can Use The Internet As And When You Want

Updated on 3 September, 2019 at 11:33 am By

Unknown to most of us, mobile operators such as Airtel, Vodafone and Idea are trying to pressurize Telecom Regulatory Authority (TRAI) to regulate certain apps and services, , like Facebook, Skype, and WhatsApp, which means we will be charged extra to use them.
Net neutrality

So TRAI has now brought up a consultation paper on net neutrality and if OTTS should be licensed. This basically means that people have been asked to answer 20 questions and send those answers in to TRAI From April 24 to May 8, counter arguments will have a chance to be heard.

How does this affect you?

Well, if telecos and their lobby, COAI, get their way, you will be paying for internet usage separately, plus each app usage separately. Think of it as: Rs 255 to use 1 GB net, Rs 50 to use Facebook, Rs 25 to use WhatsApp, etc.



Not only this, if companies have a tie-up with each other, they can make speeds fast or slow for any site they want. So if a sale is going on on Site 1, but your service provider has a tie-up with Site 2, you will be unable to browse or buy on Site 1 because the speed will be too slow.

This means that telecos are trying to make the Internet a luxury item that only the rich will be able to afford.

But here’s how you can stop this from happening:

1. Write to [email protected] explaining how such a law would adversely affect you
2. Tweet @rsprasad @PMOIndia about the same
3. Sign this petition as soon as possible and share this with others
