What do Airtel Zero and Free Basics have in common? It’s that they both violate net neutrality norms. What’s the most common complaint against them? It is that either Facebook or Airtel will find themselves as gatekeepers, putting them in a position to throttle speeds for websites that are not amongst their partners. But how exactly will Airtel or Facebook do that? Yes, we all agree that a free and open Internet is what the common man should have, but the layman often asks, “Is that really possible? Can Airtel really do this for its users?” For the answer, you need to look at a similar debate around net neutrality and zero-rated plans ongoing overseas right now.
