Net Neutrality 2.0: Don’t Block the Pipe, Lubricate the Market



Telco 2.0’s response to the issue of ‘Net Neutrality’ is now available in full on our Research website here.

Background

‘Net Neutrality’ has gathered increasing momentum as a market issue, with AT&T, Verizon, major European telcos and Google and others all making their points in advance of the Ofcom, EC, and FCC consultation processes.

‘Net Neutrality 2.0: Don’t Block the Pipe, Lubricate the Market’ is our input to these processes.

Telco 2.0’s Position in Summary

We recommend that the appropriate general response to concerns over ‘Net Neutrality’ is to make it easier for customers to understand what they should expect, and what they actually get, from their broadband service, rather than impose strict technical rules or regulation about how ISPs should manage their networks.

The paper summarises the issues, analyses the causes and effects, and gives our recommendations on ‘best practice’ in traffic management and how to regulate it.

Next Steps

We’ll be discussing ‘Net Neutrality’, and working through key traffic management ‘Use Cases’ identified in the paper, at the next Telco 2.0 Executive Brainstorms - Americas Los Angeles, October 27-28, and EMEA, London, November 9-10, 2010.
