Dangers Of The Two-tiered Internet (BLS)

By Carl Howe

Canadian law professor Michael Geist has an excellent commentary on the dangers of the two-tiered Internet that the telcos are lobbying for with the US FCC. Despite carrier claims that this would simply be an optional value-added service, Geist notes that some carriers have already abused net neutrality to keep Voice over IP services from competing with their existing phone service. Let's hope the FCC doesn't kill the net neutrality goose that created the Internet golden egg (or is that the Internet Egg McMuffin?)
