Well, I think there’s a number of things we need to tease apart When we think about Net Neutrality There’s the fundamental arguments about what that means In a technical sense, we could look at that And there’s the context in which people legislate for Net Neutrality Which is done on a per-country basis And the way it fits into each country’s legislation which leads to some of the slightly weird arguments that you hear So I think if we start with the technicals, that’s where I’m safest I mean, the idea of Net Neutrality is that you shouldn’t discriminate on the basis of you know, where IP packets come from, so what server you’re talking to or who the client is And you shouldn’t discriminate on the basis of the protocol being used And we’ve seen this a number of times, we’ve seen Certain sites getting slowed down because we don’t like what they’re doing and this is the argument that Net Neutrality advocates would have which is that It can’t be at the whim of a commercial provider, a service provider, to favour some website over another And it’s particularly the case that there’s a concern that For example, ISPs may be able to favour Some websites over others by asking people to pay for preferential access So, you know, ‘Large Company A’ pays the internet service provider to make their websites the fastest
