Fwd: Link utilization

Listers

Don’t look further for blame on this issue than the total lack of interest
from Policy Makers and Regulators regarding basic Net Neutrality tenets.
Just in case we have forgotten what Net Neutrality means here is a
definition:-

*Net neutrality <en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Net_neutrality>* is the
principle that Internet service providers treat all data on the Internet
equally, and not discriminate or charge differently by user, content,
website, platform, application, type of attached equipment, or method of
communication. For instance, under these principles, internet service
providers are unable to intentionally block, slow down or charge money for
specific websites and online content. *This is sometimes enforced through
government mandate*. These regulations can be referred to as “common
carrier” regulations. This does not block all abilities that Internet
service providers have to impact their customer’s services. Opt-in/opt-out
services exist on the end user side, and filtering can be done on a local
basis, as in the filtration of sensitive material for minors.

Where are the Consumer Protection guys on this matter?
