More on Network Neutrality

The New York Times has a good article that covers network neutrality, the lousy home network service we get in the U.S., and more.

  • Hey, Baby Bells: Information Still Wants to Be Free, By Randall Stross, New York Times, January 15, 2006.
  • Left unmentioned in Verizon’s pitch is the concentration of power that it enjoys in its service area, which would allow it to ignore the equal-access principle whenever it wishes. We are asked to take on faith that it and the other telephone companies with similar plans will handle ordinary network traffic with the same care they would show if they had not begun parallel businesses for the carriage trade. How likely is that?
