Consultation Paper: Here
How Consultatiuon Process Works
The public has been asked 20 questions based on above 2 points. You have to send mail to a TRAI email ID with answers to these questions. You can do this till April 24, 2015. Time will be provided for counter comments from April 24th to May 8th.
To make sure that anti net neutrality rules aren’t formed in India, we need each others help. Please mail TRAI and let them know we do not want to compromise on our internet Freedom.
You need to send a mail to TRAI mail id email@example.com in support of net neutrality and against differential pricing/speeds.
Why should you be bothered?
If TRAI does not get enough public mails in support of Net Neutrality, this is what you can expect:-
You will have different packages for accessing internet.
1 GB data for Rs 252 + Rs 50 for Google + Rs 25 for facebook and so on.
1 GB data pack would be like the base pack of your DTH.
But you will have to add packs for carrier decided pricing to be able to use all apps.
This isn’t even the worst thing.!
ISPs can slow down some sites on while giving faster speeds to the companies that pay them more.
Governments will no more need draconian laws to curb free speech. It can just ask the operators to make critical sites costly to access and also clamp down their speeds. Telcos that already have vested interests from the governments will happily oblige.
Do not sit silent. Drop them an email now.!!! Tweet to the PMO.! Let them know we value our freedom.!!
SHARE THIS. TWEET THIS. LET EVERYONE KNOW WHAT IS AT STAKE.!!
