Net neutrality defended in India

On Monday, 8th February the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has released a press statement upholding the principles of Net Neutrality and drops the idea of differential data pricing. The Free Software Hardware Movement, Puducherry welcomes the move of TRAI in defending the net neutrality and internet freedom in India. This statement was remarkable since it was a huge victory for the people and the netizens who fought and defended the internet democracy. We extend our congratulations to all the Free Software and Internet Freedom activists who stood against and fought out this battle on defending net neutrality in India. We also thank our activists who took part in the protest, in support of net neutrality in Puducherry.
