Arguably the most concerned group All India Bakchod (AIB) has released a new video on the highly debatable topic in the country, “Save the Internet 2 – Judgement Day” on its official YouTube channel. The video depicts the reaction of government officials and telcos and how they are treating the Net Neutrality issue. Also, the group members suggest the methods to support the same.
Previously, AIB has released a video through which they asked the people to “Save the Internet” by emailing to the respective department. As TRAI had invited the stakeholders to comment on the issue and regulation of OTT services like WhatsApp and Skype. The regulatory has received more than 10 lakh of comments, for the same.
The video called “Save the Internet 2 – Judgement Day” that urges its viewers to register to the MyGov.in and leave a comment for the issue before August 15. The website states stat, “A Committee on Net Neutrality has submitted its report to the Department of Telecommunications. Its recommendations broadly contain technical, regulatory and public policy related measures required with respect to Net Neutrality issue.”
“Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) is also currently engaged in consultation process on the issue whose recommendations are awaited, it further added. “It is emphasized that the views expressed in the report are that of the Committee and not of the Government. Your valuable comments, wide scale consultations, as also the report of the TRAI will help the Government to take appropriate decision on the issue.”
The net neutrality issue implies equal treatment be assigned to all internet traffic and no privileges should be awarded to any person, any company or any entity in exchange of payments or any other criteria.
Also, the Internet neutrality says that no company, government organization or Internet service provider should treat the Internet unequally, without any discrimination in the data usage related to different entities such as apps, websites, content, platform and more.
However, the telcos are redefining the Net Neutrality in their own words and fooling the people so that they won’t support the actual issue anymore.
