Examples of violations of net neutrality in India and abroad [COMPACTIDEA]

Airtel won't charge users any data for uploading content to its backup service.

Update [11-Sep-18]: It might seem/sound ludicrous at first, but if you think carefully about it, the way content delivery networks [CDNs] are used currently constitutes a violation of net neutrality. Not because they enable faster delivery of content, but because they enable faster delivery of only those services/websites which have the ability to pay to get on these faster lanes. Smaller outlets can't afford these high-speed lanes and have to provide a relatively inferior experience to their users. If these CDNs were speeding-up all content irrespective of its origin/source, then we could say that CDNs don't cause any violation of net neutrality.
