Net neutrality (also network neutrality, Internet neutrality, or net equality) is the principle that Internet service providers and governments should treat all data on the Internet equally , not discriminating or charging differentially by user, content, site, platform, application, type of attached equipment, or mode of communication. The term was coined by Columbia University media law professor Tim Wu in 2003 .This is the concept that holds, among other things, that all bits and bytes should be treated the same on all telco and carrier networks, so that all users can have their experience of exactly the same internet, with no bias for or against any site for any reason – including payments by that site to the carriers for preferential access.
Zero-rating (“toll-free data”) is the practice of mobile network operators (MNO) and mobile virtual network operators (MVNO) to not charge end customers for data or internet services via the MNO’s wireless network. Simply put, these are products where a set of websites are bundled and users get to surf them for free, because the bandwidth in these cases is paid to the operator by the sites themselves. Two of the more infamous zero offerings in India are Airtel Zero and Facebook’s Internet.org. Zero Rating works only in Internet enabled mobiles not laptops or PCs who are connected via ISPs (Internet Service Providers) Other forms of Zero rating include Wikipedia Zero and Google Free Zone
