Net neutrality: How to spot an arts graduate in a tech debate


Re: Poor analogy

Indeed. Claiming that net neutrality is the creation of twinkie know-nothing lawyers is pure FUD.

The problem isn't traffic management. It means things like:

The prospect of selective surcharges for certain kinds of content

(Want to host video or audio? Pay the networks extra or they won't let your customers see it.)

Creating selective bandwidth caps for some content providers but not for others

Setting up walled-gardens with limited or nonexistent outside access

It basically means breaking everything that makes the Internet so useful, and providing favourable treatment for large corporates at the expense of start-ups and individual content providers.

Twinkie lawyers have nothing to do with it. Twinkie psychotic bean counters and corporate predators are much more the problem.
