Few days back their being a great controversy of Net Neutrality Concept. Many telecommunication companies decided to violate the law of Net Neutrality which means that you have to pay the higher price for using the internet services.
Flipkart Pulls Out Airtel Zero
But today Flipkart has announced that they strongly believe in the Net Neutrality and Flipkart has backed off from zero-rating plans with Airtel with a promise to commit to the cause of net neutrality in India. We really appreciate this step of flipkart.
Flipkart Pulls out airtel zero rating plan by stating the following:
“We at Flipkart have always strongly believed in the concept of net neutrality, for we exist because of the Internet. Over the past few days, there has been a great amount of debate, both internally and externally, on the topic of zero rating, and we have a deeper understanding of the implications.
Based on this, we have decided on the following:
- We will be walking away from the ongoing discussions with Airtel for their platform Airtel Zero.
- We will be committing ourselves to the larger cause of Net Neutrality in India. We will be internally discussing over the next few days, the details of actions we will take to support the cause.
- We will be working towards ensuring that the spirit of net neutrality is upheld and applied equally to all companies in India irrespective of the size or the service being offered and there is absolutely no discrimination whatsoever.”
