- The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India has rejected the proposal of the Indian telecom operators to charge Over-the-top players for using their network.
- This will benefit OTT players operating in India. Facebook can monetize its messenger app and WhatsApp in India through mobile payments and remittances without paying the telecom operators.
- Viber allows its users to call any number, including a non-Viber user, by charging a nominal fee. WhatsApp can introduce a similar feature once voice calling facility is available.
