Net Neutrality & The Debate Around It

Differential pricing for data services opposed

Nasscom said that Airtel Zero and Free Basics violate principles of net neutrality by differentiating internet access for certain types of services.

  1. All data tariff plans should ensure unfettered right of choice for the consumer.
  2. The telecom carriers or their partners should not have a say in what content can be offered at favourable rate.
  3. Howver, it said that TRAI should have powers to approve differential pricing for data services considered to be in public interest.
  4. Nasscom has proposed a suitable oversight mechanism to check that the TSPs continue to abide by the principles of net neutrality.
