According to Wired, Indian ISPs are up in arms over IM applications that provide their (the ISPs) subscribers with VoIP [?] support. More astounding than the attitudes of the Internet Service Providers was the degree to which the Indian government seems to have (attempted or successfully - not sure) regulated the Internet in an extreme fashion running directly contrary to the end-to-end principle. "The application is dead, long live the telecoms".

Scott Tyler Shafer provides one great example of what India will be missing out on in the next 99% of the Internet's functions if the government keeps regulating in this direction.
