For the past whole week, it was a long debate by every common man and woman against his/her freedom to use internet without restrictions and it is still in a debate. Within a couple of weeks, TRAI (Telecom Regulatory Authority of India) will make a final decision against #IndiaWantsNetNeutrality. We already posted a brief article that explains about Net Neutrality from the scratch, which is in understandable manner even by a common person.
For those who still not aware of this problem, pay more attention here.
“We are paying water tax to the government and water is supplied to our home. What if we get some restrictions as follows, in order to use water for drinking we need to pay some small amount and for bathing we need to pay some amount and for washing we need to pay some amount? This is the point where we lose our freedom to utilise water even though we pay water tax.” Is It even imaginable? This is what going to happen if TRAI allows Telecommunication networks to charge for every service.
If TRAI don’t care about our voice against Net Neutrality, Internet Service Provider will track our every move in the internet usage. We need to pay more, to do more. First we need to pay for monthly internet usage. Then in order to access some shopping sites and other services, we need to pay some amount. Other than this, if we need faster internet connection, even need to pay more. How much a common man can spend from his limited family budget to the internet every month?

These telecom operators started their talk with Flipkart, initially Flipkart accepts the deal. After seeing India Wants Net Neutrality, they took their move back. Amazon also opposes this bad move of telecommunication networks especially Airtel.
