Net Neutrality Debate Heating Up in Congress

leave a comment »

net neutralityA quick summary of Net Neutrality is that no content on the web should be given preferential treatment by the owners of the pipes, wires, switches, ISPs, etc.  Net Neutrality would prevent someone like ATT from speeding up (prioritizing) the delivery of content through their pipes based on say an advertising deal.  For example, ATT would get ‘free’  advertising space on ESPN if they gave priority to Disney content.

While listening to the October 29th podcast of Webcology on Webmaster radio the hosts talked about some of Google’s new offerings and the potential implications of Net Neutrality.  When one services owns such a commanding share of the web it begs the question – Do we also need Google Neutrality?

Here are some resources for Net Neutrality education and action.
