Don't be fooled by claims of "compromise". 06-27-2006
Net Myth: New Stevens’ draft offers "deal" on Net Neutrality.
Net Fact: Don't be fooled by claims of "compromise". This latest Senate draft may be dressed up in a new outfit. But underneath, the language remains the Internet Bill of Wrongs instead of an Internet Bill of Rights that Internet users deserve.
The new bill does nothing to prevent the network operators from creating a two-tiered, pay-to-play Internet and does nothing to protect American Internet users and small businesses from discrimination at the hands of the network operators.
The Internet still ends up split into Lexus lanes and dirt roads, and an FCC rendered powerless to protect American consumers.
Net Neutrality Matters. Protect the Open Internet.
