Save The Internet – TRAI Extended the Deadline
Save The Internet
Guys, you are getting one more chance- if you still didn’t drop a mail to the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) against net nut due to any reason. TRAI on Wednesday extended the last date for submission of comments on its paper on differential data pricing to January 7 from December 30.
In a statement, the regulator said the last date for receipt of written comments had been extended on requests of stakeholders and no further extensions would be allowed afterwards. This can be your final shot guys. So grab it with both hands.
The consultation paper raises concern over zero rating tariff models. It can be defined as-
“A practice wherein service providers offer free data to users for select applications and websites.”
What is Free Basics?
Facebook’s Free Basic initiative has come under severe criticism in India as it is based on a zero rating model. TRAI has also asked Reliance Communication, Facebook’s partner in India for Free Basics, to put the service on hold till the authority considers all the details and terms and conditions of the service.
So, Let Us Tweak request you don’t just look at the word FREE. Know what you are doing and how it can affect you before doing.
What it will Do?
According to the Internet activists, Free Basics is-
“It violates the principle of Net neutrality as it restricts access to free, open Internet.”
Meanwhile, in its response to TRAI on the paper, Internet and Mobile Association of India (IAMAI) on Wednesday said differential pricing violates not only principles of Net neutrality but also TRAI’s own stated principles of pricing that tariffs should be non-discriminatory, transparent, non-anti-competitive, non-predatory, non-ambiguous and non-misleading. So just understand it and response accordingly.
