Trai’s paper on OTT players like Skype Viber and others likely by end of February

Sectoral regulator Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) is likely to come up with a consultation paper on over-the-top (OTT) players like Skype, Viber and Line by the end of February seeking comments on iss ues such as bringing them under a licensing regime, revenue sharing and net-neutrality.Trai has been working on the consultation paper for quite some time but new issues keep on emerging regarding the OTT players. OTT players facilitate their users to make calls or send voice and video messages through Internet for free. Issues like voice over Internet (VoIP) calls, net neutrality emerged recently and they have also been included into the consultation paper. Sources said Trai is going to ask questions if the present licensing framework of unified licence can cater the OTT services or a different licence has to be issued to OTTs.

Telecom minister Ravi Shankar Prasad had also said the principle of net neutrality, which means access to Internet and related services without any discrimination or barrier, is important and views of all stakeholders would be taken for evolving a governance model for the Web. “Internet is property of world. Global world must be linked to local. Net neutrality is important as Internet is meant for masses. We will need to take stakeholders views to see broadly what should be the governance architecture to deal with it,” Prasad had said. Under the principle of net neutrality, telecom operators or anyone who plays a role in delivery of Internet should not discriminate or impose any kind of barrier for accessing the Internet or services based on the Internet. Department of telecom has also constituted a panel on net neutrality. Source: Tech2
