Net Neutrality: Who will control the Internet?
Feb 6th, 2006
8:30 AM - 9:30 AM
Session Type: General Session
Net neutrality is the concept of keeping the Internet open to all lawful content, information, applications, and equipment. There is increasing concern that the owners of the local broadband connections (usually either the cable or telephone company) may block or discriminate against certain Internet users or applications in order to give an advantage to their own services. This panel will explore this concept from the perspectives of Internet engineers, independent carriers, and the higher education community.
