We want Net Neutrality

From the day Internet has arrived in India it is expanding on a very high speed and these days millions of Indian people are using Internet and its services to do their work, but what if you were asked to pay nothing for a complete bullshit service whereas high amount for accessing quality services like for e.g. YouTube, Saavn etc.?

All this even after you’ve paid for the Internet Package. Unfair right?

Telecom companies  in India are taking actions to restrict and gain control over how we access services available on the internet. We must take action to stop them from doing this.

We people pay to access the Internet services and we should have the control over what and how we will access, not the telecom operators.

To ensure Net Neutrality you can Sign this petition:

or, e-mail TRAI, at here’s a demo email by Mahesh Murthy, you can send a copy of same (add your own name) or you may edit it:

Dear TRAI,

I am writing to express my concern against the actions that telecom carriers are taking to restrict fair access to the internet (net neutrality). I believe the internet is a vital resource—it helps me communicate, work, and thrive as a citizen. If telecom operators can discriminate internet traffic on the basis of which services pay the most, we are allowing telcos control over a vital and necessary technological resource. By doing so we allow them to define what information we can view; what entertainment we can access; and how companies can innovate.
This is completely unfair and harms India’s long term role in the global market. I strongly believe the growth of telecoms and the well-being of the internet can go hand-in-hand. I’m asking for a framework to ensure long term and fair access for all services regardless of size. I want my generation and those that come after me to have unfettered access to the Internet, with no telcos or ISPs having the ability to charge for specific services I use on top of it. Please understand that the internet is an important resource and vital to me and to every other Indian citizen. I would like to see it kept free and protected under Net Neutrality to ensure fair and equal access for all and forever.
