The Cold Filtered Ramblings of Gene Mueller

Net Neutrality

  • Print

 

 

       It's not a phrase from an eighth grade algebra book.  

       It's the future of the Internet as we know it, according to some who are freaking out about the possibility of a fast-lane on the web.    Right now, your e-mail to mom travels as fast as your next Google search or this very blog. Will that change?

      Not of the FCC gets it's way, although there are legal questions as to the commission's authority to regulate such things. Google and Verizon supposedly are on the cusp of a deal that would create the first vestiges of a "two-tiered Internet".

 

       Minnesota Senator Al Franken wants the web to stay as is.  Of course, we're all about giving both sides here at "Cold Filtered" which is why we offer up this counterpoint fron the San Francisco Chronicle.

 

I'm all for supply/demand and letting the free market decide. I also like my Internet the way it is: equal access to any and all information. Bigger brains than mine will decide the fate of "net neutrality". Let's just hope they don't screw up a good thing, and dig deeper into our wallets/purses in the process.
