    Why don't they increase the speed instead of tariff?

    I pay a lot for 256kbps.

    When will the government understand that facilities like internet are a major requirement for the development of socity? Better internet=easier access to quality content=no tension from crapy teachers=better education.

    Technically VoIP is just voice data piggybacking on normal internet data right?
    Why should the providers pay more for the spectrum they have already bought ?

    Because if you use VOIP you do not have to pay to the government for calls and hence they lose revenue, they want to tax you for every call you make, doesn't matter over phone or over internet.

    Yes, true. What I mean is that these service providers have already bought the spectrum, so why should they be paying any more money now just because they want to offer VoIP?

    Because this burden is only going o be offloaded on the shoulders of the users which in turn would mean that the service wont exactly be cheap and in that case the whole argument of cheap VoIP calls is lost. I mean, cellular calls in India are already amongst the cheapest anywhere in the world apparently, so any service that is "cheap" has to be cheaper than that. And this move by the govt, if enforced, might fill the government coffers with a little more money for some corrupt politician to gobble but not help anyone else. :|
