UN plans to introduce a tax on Internet?

U.S. authorities have expressed grave concern the plans for putting the UN to pay for content delivery.As shown by documents published in the alleged leakage of information from the ITU (International Telecommunication Union to the UN), European telecom operators insist that the major content providers, including major traffic generators such as YouTube and Netflix, pay for the transmission of their material to consumers in other countries. Strictly speaking, in the published documents do not contain any guidance on the mandatory nature of such payments. Draft terms of payment only gives the right to conclude transactions between a content provider and network operator, which is not taxable, required to be paid.The main claim of the American authorities and commentators from the IT industry is that content providers deals with foreign carriers disrupt one of the basic principles of the Internet - an absolutely equitable delivery of any data. Nevertheless, here you can find a policy of double standards. For example, we can already see that the video stream from YouTube delivered faster than any other similar sites. Of course, the reason for this advantage lies in the enormous technical resources, which are involved in the site, but the fact remains - no other service can not achieve the same quality, speed and stability of the broadcast.The principle of payment for delivery by the sender actually has a long history in the telecommunications industry. For example, a developing country when building its telephone network, earns first place in payment for the annexation of foreign networks so they can earn money on international calls to this country. The program consists of data reverse situation - developing countries build their Internet segments, but are forced to pay for shipping (ie, consumption) of content from the U.S., where the largest sources of content, the people of his country. What has to ITU, because it is preferential to legitimize the transfer of content to consumers: the content provider will pay the service provider (if you wish), that it was his content delivered to customers as a priority.Internet - a great invention, it is hard to deny. However, its creators have laid him in a lot of decisions to ensure efficiency in the destruction of the channels, but did not foresee what will happen when the super-network of the world will become a tool of commerce and consumption. Whatever it was, the modern principle of equitable delivery of data is now working exclusively in the U.S. and developed countries, since it is their companies supply most of the content. Officers of the ITU pointed out that the winners are the countries that do not speak English, making use of U.S. content is reduced. Thus, on a plan of ITU, if the Western service providers want to get a customer from less developed countries, they will have to pay for it, funding the development of network infrastructure in these countries.In addition to purely economic reasons, the current campaign against the legalization of reduced shipping traffic due to agreements between suppliers and the "carriers" of content, there are political motives. Perhaps the performance of the presidential administration and the parliament against the U.S. plans for the UN can only be a part of the campaign - the U.S. presidential election will take place later this year. How would indeed be the case with the right service providers to provide anyone the right to priority delivery of data, will have the near future.
