Content Sites to Pay Indian ISPs?: Some of the biggest content sites/portals would have to pay a toll to be accessed by users in India, if plans mooted by the Indian ISP trade association bear fruit.

“Traditional bricks and mortar producers have to sweeten the distribution channels, so why not MSN? And with foreign steel companies now paying an additional tariff to enter the US market, isn’t this a simple reciprocation?”
