A win for Net Neutrality

, Wednesday, January 3rd, 2007

You may have heard about the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC’s) recent approval of the AT&T-BellSouth merger. One of the conditions that the FCC placed on the meger was guaranteed net neutrality on its broadband service for the next two years. Net Neutrality refers to the battle against charging Web site owners extra for high-speed delivery and preserving the ability (the right) for equal access to even the smallest Web site. It’s the big telecom companies (AT&T, TimeWarner, Comcast, etc.) who are pushing for a tiered pricing system that will enable those who can pay to make their sites as fast as possible.
