Rational Thoughts On Network Neutrality
from the about-time dept
We’ve been pointing out the ridiculous editorials on network neutrality that get the basic facts wrong and ignore the real issue (the lack of competition), so we might as well point to the well written pieces on the topic as well. 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. So what will it take to move the discussion away from the minor issue of network neutrality, and back to the bigger issue of competition?
