Net Neutrality Editorial at NY Times

Protecting Internet Democracy – New York Times

This is a good call to arms about net neutrality. It does a good job of explaining the two-tier Internet that the Telcos and Cablecos want to impose.

But they call the AT&T-BellSouth merger a “limited but important victory for net neutrality” because AT&T was willing to concede a tiny bit. The reality of that deal is that AT&T will offer neutral slow broadband but have a more expensive higher speed service available that will not be neutral. Read Susan Crawford’s analysis.
