Why Even Bells Need Net Neutrality

A great blog post by Daniel Berninger of Tier 1 Research describing how the right-of-way to lay fiber in communities has a Net Neutrality obligation associated with it: "they all specify that access to state right-of-way at largely no cost or limit requires common carrier status (aka net neutrality.) The loss of common carrier status invalidates the contracts. The Bell companies have no access to state right-of-way for deployment of private, closed, non-neutral, non-common carrier network deployments." Read the rest of the post.
