Net Neutrality Links
I’m adding this link to the Net Neutrality Page.
. . . if everything and all the content that was being accessed, was in the same network, nobody really cares. . . . The person who laid that infrastructure is also the one reaping the revenue out of it.
We are talking about a world, that in another few years is going to look very very complicated and simple at the sametime. I could switch between my television and “mobile communication device” in ease. I can flip my video conferencing session from my mobile phone, to the big screen television to get a better view and perspective if I wanted to… all this means, I’ll have to hop between networks, and the amount of effort, energy and money that needs to go into making sure that interoperability is achieved, is enormous – not to mention the billions of dollars that are invested towards that infrastructure.
Simply put, nobody is going to make that investment, unless operators can be sure that out of all these services, they can get some money. . . . Since all the devices will be on IP . . . there cant be a way to differentiate what these services are. That’s basically the reason why these “walled gardens” are being raised – just to make sure that there is some basis for charging your usage, in a fair manner.
