Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today wrote on his micro blogging site Twitter "AAP committed to neutral internet. India MUST debate #NetNeutrality. I support #Saveinternet campaign http://www.savetheinternet.in"

The online campaign www.savetheinternet.in has been set up where a user can send a mail directly to TRAI pledging your support to net neutrality and express their discomfort on the
issue.

Demanding net neutrality, AAP MLA, Adarsh Shastri said "it is extremely important. Content and the medium to reach to the content should be independent. So medium which takes the user to the content should not have control on how to access it. It will lead to monopolistic situation."

If net neutrality was not implemented, then new start-up companies would be stuck as they would have no way to afford. Neutrality is in the interest of business health, start-up, and consumer. It should be mandated by TRAI for national benefit, Shastri asserted.

Various online campaigns have gathered momentum on social media websites which stand against telecom operators charging extra money from users and companies to open apps faster and slowing down the speed for those who don't pay.

Netizens have been demanding net neutrality so that all sites are equally accessible, at the same speed, and if there is a cost of access, it should be the same for all.
