"Save the internet" has been in response to India's telecom regulator, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India, consultation paper on regulatory framework for Over-the-top (OTT) services (Skype, Viber, WhatsApp, Google Talk) released on 27th March 2015. The objective of the consultation paper is to analyze the implications of the growth of OTTs and consider whether or not changes are required in the current regulatory framework.
F.C.C. is expected to propose regulating internet service as a utility in a move expected to safeguard the norm of equal treatment of content on the Internet therefore deterring content blocking or discrimination.
The battle just started, all depends on the range of net neutrality, and the consensus about zero-rating. I think zero-rating breaks the net neutrality since there was one agreement with Telcos and content sites that break the equality of contents offering. This for me was the more perverse way to break net neutrality since the user couldn't realize the net neutrality was affected and will fight to preserve the "benefit".
If you don't put yourself into the point of view of this dumbed user you just evaluate the subject trough commercial, technical and legal issues and must understand there was no trouble keeping zero-rating.
Moving forward, one day Facebook will die, zero-rating agreements and the notorious"philanthropic" spirit of Zuckberg are just looking for himself, imagine that the difficult to new entrants are directly proportional to the number of zero-rating users. But one day Facebook will die, at this day can you imagine what will happen if that zero-rating orphans ?
Really my apocalyptic discuss is plausible and we will face millions of user completely disoriented.
Former EC Commissioner Nelie Kroes thinks zero rating is not a net neutrality issue: here
Zero-rating debate are hot! At last IGF in Istanbul the subject come to all panels about net-neutrality, also someones about critical resources. As citizen of development country, I shared my worries at this article:
An interesting new blog by Luigi Gambardella, the Chairman of ETNO (European Telco Association): "What Juncker, Ansip and Oettinger should do for the telecom sector ..."
What I read from it:
Pity the telcos are not also inviting for greater investment in developing more European apps, services and content, which could keep the money in EU, and possibly raise the usage of the net by their European customers (services of local relevance are a good driver for greater use).
How do you read this?

Colleagues, please find attached link to article that deals with a monopoly held by the major telco in Guyana and an upcoming foreign telco that is calling to arms anyone interested in the end of this tactic.
Net Neutrality is a very important issue because concerns to the regulatory framework we should want to build and to perpetuate by generations.
Indeed the law that should be drafted by countries can't do references to a specific technology, because the consequences will be the decay of the bill.
For citizens to abide a lawit needs to refer generically to all kinds of technology existing today and why not in the future.
