COAI: Claims of ‘usage fee’ for OTTs is violating net neutrality misleading

Share via:

The Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI) stated that telecom operators’ demand for a reasonable ‘usage fee’ from OTT Communication service providers is ‘fair and rational’. The body’s remarks follow on the heels of the ongoing telco-OTT revenue sharing debate

COAI said in a statement that the usage fee would help to develop the country’s digital infrastructure while also contributing to the economy. The announcement comes just days after the Internet & Mobile Association of India (IAMAI) expressed opposition to the idea of a revenue-sharing model between OTT and telecom players. According to the IAMAI, the demand for a revenue sharing model is a “covert attempt” to weaken net neutrality in India.
