Rational Thoughts on Network Neutrality – Que? June 19, 2006Posted by Zack W. Handley in freemarket, Google, money, netneutrality, Politics.
I Missed this last week: TechDirt Reports on “Rational Thoughts On Network Neutrality”
Former telco exec Tom Evslin writes out a nice balanced article that highlights the real issues (the lack of competition)
while also noting why network neutrality is necessary — and why trying
to legislate network neutrality is difficult to impossible and could
backfire as well. He, like us at Techdirt, feels that there’s too many
lies on both sides of this debate — and its obscuring the real issues.
The REAL issue is Competition. And though it goes against my libertarian leanings to appeal for government manadated ‘competition’. they got us into this mess, so they should get us out and more stifling regulation (read: NetNeutrality) is fruther in the wrong direction and anti-competition.
