A Neutral Net

• 102 words

Today the Senate hearings on Net Neutrality took place. The details of the testimonies are online.

I believe that everyone who has a vested interest in seeing business and service innovation continue to flourish on the internet should be concerned about the proposal for access-tiering introduced by the last-mile broadband vendors.

I suggest you read some of the testimonies to get an idea what was discussed at the hearing. I believe that today Larry Lessig's testimony was particularly eloquent, building upon Powell's "Internet Freedoms" policy combined with the end-to-end argument. If there is one testimony you could read it should be his.
