IIIT Bangalore and CUTS International partnered together to organize the IIIT-B
CUTS Workshop on Broadband Labels, to generate awareness and sensitize
multiple stakeholders such as policy makers, industry and consumers to advocate for
broadband labels that are readable in a simple and standard format (similar to
nutrition labels on food packs) and at the same time to empower consumers with
information in making informed decisions on usage and purchase of broadband data
plans. The workshop was co-chaired by Prof. V. Sridhar, IIIT Bangalore and Mr. Rahul
Singh, CUTS International, and was organised at IIIT Bangalore on December 15. The
event was attended by officials of the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) and
industry experts.
