Support Net Neutrality; but need level playing field says Telecom Operators, Signal data cost hike

While coming out in support of Net Neutrality, telecom service providers on Friday said there is a need to create a level playing field to run a ‘viable’ business and demanded that same rule should apply for same services, including VoIP services such as Skype or internet TV platforms like Chromecast.

Net Neutrality is the principle that service providers should treat all data on the internet equally, and not discriminate or charge differently by user, content, site, platform, or application. The telecom operators in the country have been receiving a lot of flak from the users as they are perceived to against open internet.

The service providers also warned that if they were to offer unlimited VoIP (voice over Internet Protocol) the mobile data prices will need to be increased by atleast six times for operators to sustain business.

“If the same rules are not to apply, then the only way this industry can be viable is data rate will be 6x from where they are there today. After that, you can do what you want, it really does not matter… But if you take data rate to 5x or 6x, a lot of people in India will never use the Internet,” COAI Vice-Chairman and Bharti Airtel India Managing Director Gopal Vittal said.
