Pre-consultation on net neutrality to start this week: Trai

By May 19th, 2016 AT 4:23 PM

Indian telecom regulator Trai will kick-off pre-consultation on net neutrality within two to three days, the chairman R S Sharma said. While the differential tariff issue has already been resolved by the regulator, parts of net neutrality like framework for internet-based calls, messaging, throttling of internet speed on the basis of content have not been resolved so far.

Earlier, India’s leading telco Bharti Airtel had separately written to Trai seeking clarification on differential rules, whether they can offer services exclusively to their customers.

“We have been approached by one of the big global content providers,” the telco earlier wrote in a letter to the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai). It said that a US company “wishes to offer video content on an exclusive basis over Airtel’s closed electronic communication network (CECN) to our customers.

“Trai will take call on issue raised by companies based on tariff they file with the regulator,” Sharma was quoted as saying by PTI.

The report said that every Indian telecom operator needs to file tariff with the Trai for the service they intend to provide to their customers.
