Indian operators urge rethink on differential data pricing

The decision effectively banned zero-rated services such as Facebook’s Free Basics and Bharti Airtel’s Airtel Zero.COAI (Cellular Operators Association of India) has now written to the regulator, asking it to change its mind in light of the confusion over services delivered via closed electronic communication networks (CECNs), also known as the intranet.The letter asked TRAI “to review its decision of the CECN network and allow differential tariffs on the basis of content irrespective of whether such content is provided through the closed network or open internet”.The body argued that the regulator allows discriminatory pricing of data services when content is delivered over CECNs.Net neutrality supporters acknowledge CECNs could offer a loophole for operators to offer zero rated services. However, TRAI argues the rules on data pricing are clear.TRAI’s letter looks for clarification on two areas. Firstly, whether an operator could share advertising revenue with a content provider which is providing exclusive content to an operator’s subscribers at a subsidised rate. And if a content provider could offer subsidised subscription to some or all of an operator’s subscribers, whether that is a CECN.The correspondence comes within weeks of the country’s largest operator, Bharti Airtel, approaching the regulator about a potential deal with an unnamed US content provider that would supply exclusive video over the operator’s intranet.

It is swollen but we have to see,” Klopp said.“[Thursday] it was swollen, today I spoke to him he said ‘it’s much better than yesterday’ but we have to see. Apart from that it was a brilliant night for him, not only because of the penalty but also because of the game.”Adrian, who saved a penalty in the penalty shoot-out win against Chelsea, was only playing because first choice keeper Alisson is currently sidelined with injury.Liverpool fan Reaaz Ahmed was at the game in Istanbul and appears to have caught the moment Adrian was hit by the fan.It happened as Liverpool’s players were huddled together celebrating the save.A supporter, attempting to join the group, ran towards them, slipped as he was grabbed by a steward, and collided with several players.

If we have to make a decision, then we make a decision.“Caoimhin is a boy we are all excited about. He’s now in training, but not 100 per cent yet. He has to be in training today, then we will see.”Naby Keita, meanwhile, will not play.“It’s a muscle thing and we don’t know exactly how long it will take. But he’s not available,” Klopp said.

Piccadilly Circus billboard lights turned off for upgradation

first_imgLondon, Jan 16 (PTI) For the first time since World War II, the iconic billboard lights at Londons Piccadilly Circus was switched off today as work begins on a new state-of-the- art advertising screen that would be unveiled in autumn.The billboard, which has displayed electrical advertisements for more than a century, went dark at 08:30 am for work to take place.It is the first time since World War II the lights have gone off, except for power cuts and special events, the BBC reported.The screens will be replaced with one curved screen of the same size that will be the highest resolution LED display of its size in the world, The Evening Standard said.The work is set to be finished by Autumn.A temporary advertising banner will replace the lights.As well as being an advertising board, it will be able to provide live video streaming and give updates about events such as the weather and sports results.Ros Morgan, chief executive of the Heart of London business alliance, said the new screen would “bring visitors an enhanced entertainment experience”.About 100 million people are estimated to pass through Piccadilly Circus each year.The lights have previously gone out in 1939 to comply with World War II blackouts. They were not switched back on until 1949.Since then, they have only been turned off as a mark of respect, including during the funerals of Winston Churchill and Princess Diana, and in support of environmental campaigns.The occasional power cut and the imposed three-day week in the 1970s have also plunged Piccadilly Circus into darkness.advertisementThe new display, which will be the same size as the current space, will be shared by six advertisers.Coca-Cola has been advertising in Piccadilly Circus since 1954 and will continue its residency, while Samsung will also have a spot.Vasiliki Arvaniti, portfolio manager at Land Securities, said the new screen would offer brands “pioneering new ways to connect” with people.
