What Is Net Neutrality, Anyway? - Column by PC Magazine's John C. Dvorak

What Is Net Neutrality, Anyway?

John Dvorak of PC Magazine knows all about the technology and the players, since his pet love outside of personal computing, is telecommunications.

This is part of closing argument:

"Net neutrality does not keep the ISPs from selling me a 10-megabit-per-second connection at a higher price than a 1-Mbps connection. It does not kill competition. What it does is allow me to get what I want at the speed that I paid for rather than have some socialists née corporate apparatchiks (I can pull the socialist stunt, too) back at the Kremlin/HQ deciding that I will get a Google feed at half the speed of a Microsoft Live feed when I do a search. "

Very quick and to many points.
