History l.jpg

History

The term “network neutrality” originated with the first telegraph lines for public use around 1860

The term in its current context was first used at the start of the 21st century

Proposed laws such as the Internet Freedom and Nondiscrimination Act of 2006 would have prohibited discrimination by service providers

These laws would make peering networks that discriminate against content or services illegal under anti-trust laws
