Net Neutrality – Get Onboard

Chances are, if you’re reading this, you’re already attuned to the concept of Net Neutrality and why it’s a good thing. If you’re not dialed into it and why it’s essential for the future, or if you want to see it explained in the most BS-free way possible, check out this four minute clip. It’s all clear for the moment, but we might have to stand up and fight for it sooner than later.

I’m impressed, I should say. Really rarely do I encounter a weblog that’s both educative and entertaining, and permit me to show you, you’ve gotten hit the nail around the head. Your idea is great; the catch is the one thing not enough consumers are talking intelligently about. Im delighted that I found this within my request for something talking about this.

hmmm. I understand about some organizations efforts being misguided – it’s a natural occurance, but forgive me: I don’t see what’s wrong with all packets being treated equally? (seriously, no sarcasm here… just trying to get your point)

Chase,

I work with the Hands Off The Internet Coalition and what you may not know…as tech blogger Mark Milliman points out, “Save the Internet is a well meaning web organization intended to create a level playing field for all sites on the Internet. Too bad that its efforts are misguided by spreading fear, uncertainty, and doubt…

Net Neutrality legislation currently proposed will actually set up the same walled garden that it is trying to prevent. The legislation will force all packets for Internet access to be treated equally. That means that AT&T;’s VoIP service receives the same priority as Vonage’s (VG) VoIP service. So far so good, but it also means that those packets are the same as a Bittorrent transfer. Not so good for any provider of time sensitive traffic whether AT&T;, Google, or Vonage.”
