8 step process 1 of 2
8-Step Process (1 of 2)

  • Summary: Open internet vs tiers based on price

  • Parties and expectations:

    • Corporations: Charge more for certain content

    • General public: Keep internet open

  • Three possible solutions:

    • Charge based on very specific content type & duration of use

      • Best case: Public keeps using Internet in the same way despite cost

      • Worst case: Public starts to discriminate towards cheaper content

    • Put govt. in charge of internet; make it totally “free” and open

      • Best case: All people have access; govt. maintains good infrastructure

      • Worst case: Govt. does bad job; internet falls apart

    • Keep the internet as is: charge based on speed alone

      • Best case: Internet providers still make profit; public satisfied

      • Worst case: Internet providers burdened with upkeep; no innovation
