The debate on Net neutrality in India started after Airtel, the national division of Bharti Airtel, a mobile telephony service provider in India (32.15% owned by Singtel), announced in December 2014 to charge additional rates for making voice calls (VoIP) from its network using apps like WhatsApp, Skype, etc.
Chua said in March 2014, she "urged regulators to give carriers like Optus the right to charge rivals such as WhatsApp and Skype for use of their networks or risk a major decline in network investment".
