Why ‘zero rating’ is the new battleground in net neutrality debate

Many internet providers are trying to establish zero rating as their preferred business models. There were at least 92 zero-rated services in the developed world as of November, according to Finnish consultancy Rewheel.

Of those, 36 mobile phone operators were exempting their own video services from usage caps and 10 were doing so for their cloud storage offerings. Third-party applications such as YouTube, HBO Go, Spotify and Facebook got the special treatment in just a handful of cases.
