|Scope of Internet|
What is Net Neutrality?Net Neutrality is the Idea derived from the telephone lines which worked
since the beginning of the 20th century. In those days the operators didn’t block the access to the
numbers, nor deliberately delay the connection to a number. Most countries on the globe ask
telecom operators to provide unfiltered and unrestricted phone calls. In 1980s and 1990s there were
no same principles for the Internet Service Providers. But mostly telecom operators were Internet
Providers they ran on the same principles. This principle is called as the Net Neutrality. When a web
user connects to a website, he or she gets the same speed. Data rate for Youtube videos and
Facebook photos is theoretically same. Users can access any legal website or web service without
any interference from an ISP.
What if there is no Net Neutrality?If we go by the legal terms, Net Neutrality doesn’t exist in India.
TRAI, the body which regulates the telecom industry has tried to get the rules and regulations for the
Net Neutrality many times. Internet is now the integral part of the society. Thus, the Internet Service
Providers from all over the globe try to control the internet traffic. If there is no net neutrality then
the ISPs will try to control the traffic in an irrelevant way so as to earn more profit. Like some ISPs
want to charge separately for several of your favourite applications like Youtube, Facebook,
Watsapp and even the news sites. Basically these ISP need to take the share from such successful
sites who earn ample of money every day. The day will come that instead of the Internet Plans you
will be buying the ‘Package Plans’ it is also possible that you will be forced to pay more money and
more money and more money for the faster access to your Internet. In the near future it can be the
time of tax payments for your every other click on the internet. Yes!! This nightmare can soon be
changed into the reality.
So, before they start taking the every single penny of yours and leave you begging for one minute
access of Internet to your Friend, vote today for the save internet campaign. As TRAI has asked for
India’s answer till 24 April 2015 regarding the Net Neutrality in the Nation.
