Net neutrality is a hot topic in India right now, with Facebook's Free Basics being the latest culprit against net neutrality. TRAI is supposed to publish a paper on net neutrality and was welcoming user comments, with the deadline originally supposed to end on the 30th of December.

The authority however has decided to extend this until the 7th of January, which will give users more time to comment and make their opinions heard. It is said that the date was extended on the request of the COAI (Cellular Operators Association of India) and AUSPI (Association of Unified Telecom Service Providers of India).

255);">TRAI has seen over 1.6 million comments on net neutrality, which is the highest ever for any paper posted by TRAI so far.

Airtel Zero initially started the whole net neutrality debate where it proposed charging users for calls made using mobile data, but fortunately, common sense prevailed and the network had to withdraw the plan following public outrage.

We won't see this debate dying down anytime soon, but it's quite apparent that the public have made their opinions loud and clear to the likes of Facebook who are trying to push features and policies that contradict the core values of net neutrality.
