Airtel users can be happy for the time being because Airtel has decided to withdraw their plan to charge separately for VoIP services.
Earlier they had decided to charge Rs.75 for 75MB VoIP services usage. VoIP services include Skype,Viber,LINE etc.
It can be noted that Whatsapp will soon introduce VOIP service.
Charging separately for VOIP usage is total violation of Net Neutrality. Airtel said that they will wait for TRAI’s upcoming regulations on OTT players including VoIP before implementing their new VoIP packs.
The telecom operators complain that these OTT players are eating into their revenues.
