Net Neutrality Links

We’re talking about a simple idea, that when you haven’t paid for dedicated capacity at a given throughput and reliability . . . your traffic will travel at the same speed and with the same reliability as everyone else’s traffic. The carriers’ position is that they should be able to define that freedom of access. It is the long and successful tradition of the United States that it does not allow a monopoly or duopoly to operate free of regulations which define a minimum common good that they must fulfill in exchange for their market positions.
