If you have ever used the internet, which is obvious since you are reading this post then you should support net neutrality. First, let us know what net neutrality means- Net Neutrality simply means that all content and data should be treated equal. It is a global principle of keeping internet freedom intact. Now you would be wondering that who would take your freedom? Your Internet Service Provider (ISP).

ISPs want to act as a gatekeeper since it will bump their revenues and benefit big corporations. The small companies will not get a fair chance to survive and prosper. Telecom providers are opposing Net Neutrality since their costs have increased and they need to develop different strategies to earn profits.

Now you might be wondering what the Government is doing? Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has issued a consultation paper of 118 pages which contains 20 questions. No, I am not telling you to read so many pages. As a responsible citizen you just have to log on to www.savetheinternet.in and click on ‘Respond To TRAI’. You just have to mail the auto-response to TRAI.

Basically the only platform where you can express your feelings freely i.e. the Internet, will no longer be accessible the way you like if you don’t take action. If you lose your money, you can earn it again but if you lose your freedom then no one can save you. It’s the time to fight for our rights!
