Good Fences Make Bad Broadband

Sunday, January 1, 2006

Abstract

The genius of the Internet is its promise of unlimited accessibility. With very limited exceptions, any consumer with an Internet connection and a computer can visit any web site, attach any device, post any content, and provide any service. While the openness of the Internet is universally praised, it is no longer guaranteed, at least for broadband services. Recent Supreme Court and FCC rulings define broadband networks as unregulated "information services," which means that the operators of broadband networks are no longer under any legal obligation to keep their networks open to all Internet content, services and equipment.
