Senatorial Net Neutrality

Net Neutrality was the topic of heated discussion in one ISPCON session today. At the end, the Image Stream team felt that WISPA needed to address the Net Neutrality debate head on. JC Utter and I talked about it. My feelings: most ISP's don't care about it (nothing new there as many ISP's play ostrich often (see picture)).

The Senate is looking at NN legislation. That's what you want: a Congress Critter telling you how to manage your network. [see here.] It's not like they need new laws. They need to clearly enforce the ones on the books like Common Carriage, Title I & II, and Truth in Advertising.

To me, Privacy is a bigger issue than Net Neutrality. BTW, NebuAd sued over privacy claims. Oops!
