Free eBook: “Net Neutrality and Fair Use: Where Service Providers Fit”


June 22, 2006 - 0 Comments

BRUSSELS – I thought any of you wanting a deeper dive on net neutrality issues would be interested in this eBook produced by xChange Magazine. While there are myriad articles on”net neutrality” from the content provider’s point of view (as well as most blogs’ points of view), there has been very little out there to tell the story of what service providers are expected to endure under the concept of net neutrality. You can access the eBook here.Another interesting article on the topic of net neutrality is from eWeek and reporter Wayne Rash. The American Consumer Institute announced that it is asking senators to leave any regulatory provisions out of their net neutrality legislation. Dr. Larry Darby, head of the Institute and former Chief Economist at the FCC, argues that passing net neutrality regulations as written would simply pass the network buildout costs to the consumer “while the companies that benefit the most, such as Google and Microsoft, would be given what is essentially a free ride.” Something that sounds eerily similar to a blog entry I wrote earlier this month. Great minds think alike? Check out the eWeek article, “Institute Slams Net Neutrality Legislation.”
