What else could we have that is UDP based? Ah voice calls. Video calls.
Stuff that requires low latency and where TCP retransmit of stale data is
bad. Media without buffering because it is real time.

And why would a telco want to zero rate all the bandwidth heavy media with
certain exceptions? Like not zero rating media that happens to compete with
some of their own services, such as voice calls and video calls.

Yes sounds like net neutrality to me too (or not!).
