One of the growing e-commerce companies of the country, Infibeam has taken stand and is against all the biased Internet Service Providers (ISPs) of the country.
Access to equal internet speed for any website or mobile app is a right of every consumer who is paying money for data to the ISPs. Hence, the ISPs can not be biased and have to provide traffic equally. Infibeam favours net neutrality.
In India with over 15 ISPs, there are about 10 crore internet users. Despite huge number of internet subscribers and mobile users, the ISPs, which are also telecom operators are bleeding heavily.
As per industry estimates, of the total revenue of the telecom companies, over 75% is contributed by voice and rest is by value added services including data.
Recently, a few telecom operator announced of giving free internet access to consumers for certain e-commerce, news websites, social media sites and mobile apps. For this, the cost along with profit will be bared by the respective websites.
Some global companies believe that free access to internet is the right of consumers. In that case, Infibeam believes that the telecom operators can not be biased and should give free internet access to every user in India. Infibeam is and will always be in favour of net neutrality.
