TOPIC 1 - Net Neutrality - India - Anivar and Abhiram

  • The Indian regulator have set the tone for 21st century internet in the developing world. TRAI decision is a beacon for govts around the world considering how the internet should be brought to the poorer half of the world. That internet for us in the developing world will not be a second class shoddy internet in the name of access. It will not be the Government controlled net offered by the Governments of Russia, Iran or China. Neither will it of the pure capitalist wild west set by telecommunications companies, regulators in the west or platform companies.In particular no effort to break privacy, security of the poor in exchange for internet or service by any platform company will be tolerated
  • Zero rating (discriminatory/Differential pricing) --> offer crumbs from the Internet’s table in the form of free access to walled-garden services as a solution for digital divide. But this breaks Net Neutrality Mozilla Wrote 3 Letters t o Government of India including the one submitted to this consultation process .
