Abstract

Last week, India’s Telecom Regulatory Authority (TRAI) issued regulations that prohibit service providers from charging discriminatory tariffs for online data services. While the regulations have been hailed as a victory for net neutrality, some have also argued that TRAI’s steps signify a lamentable loss for those not connected to the Internet. LSE alumna Anri van der Spuy provides a brief overview of some of the arguments involved and assesses how it might impact other developing countries in their attempts to improve (meaningful) Internet access.
