  1. A Series of Tubes without Tollbooths Brandon Vigil Net Neutrality

  2. Section 202 of the FCC charter It shall be unlawful for any common carrier to make any unjust or unreasonable discriminations in charges, practices, calssifications, regulations, facilities or services for or in connection with like communication service directly or indirectly, by any means or device, or to make or give any undue or unreasonable preference or advantage to any particular person, class of persons or localitty to any undue or unreasonable prejudice or disadvantage.”

  3. What Net Neutrality isn't • Net Neutrality != Free Internet • If one wants access to the Internet, you will have to pay for it • Net Neutrality != one won't pay more for faster service • More bandwidth = higher cost

  4. Net Neutrality is about keeping the Internet Free • ISP are making steps toward creating a tiered service for providing internet • Will ensure that the big names will get priority on their data packets • For those businesses willing to pay, it will result in a monopoly • Strangle out the smaller guys who can't afford to pay for priority hosting • Helping bridge the Digital Divide

  5. Things to watch for... • Almost 98% of the entire high speed internet market is cornered by either cable or DSL • ISPs bottlenecking customers under the speed they paid for • Uncoming FCC vote on “Internet through White Space”
