Raphy

I'm dubious of the Bells. They've lied so many times in the past that it's hard to take them seriously when they make promises.

I thought Professor Yoo made some interesting points about net neutrality, creating a new term -- network diversity -- in the process.

“Network neutrality would lock the Internet into a one-size-fits-all architecture that would only reduce broadband providers’ ability to manage their networks and meet the increasingly varied demands that consumers are placing on the Internet,” concludes Professor Yoo.
“The explosive growth in Internet traffic and the emergence of time-sensitive applications, like streaming video and Internet telephony, have greatly increased the problems of congestion. At the same time, it has opened up new ways in which broadband networks can compete with one another. At this point, it would seem imprudent to foreclose any particular response unless and until some specific harm to consumers can be shown.”
