Net neutrality


Interesting to see the coverage the net neutrality issue has received in the media. Net neutrality can be broadly defined as the principle of treating all Internet traffic as being equal. Attempts to enshrine this principle in legislation in the US have failed, leading to concerns that ISPs and telcos could start restricting which sites users are able to access...more compelling evidence to help build the case for a dedicated network for education? Silicon.com have published a useful cheat sheet on the issue.
