The Network Neutrality Debate

This is a great rant that pokes holes in just about everyone's arguments: LXer: Network Neutrality and an Internet with Vision.

In recently-aired plans by telephone companies, content providers who are willing to pay extra would get their content delivered at a higher bandwidth. While it's easy to wax indignant over telephone companies' presumptuousness in deciding what packets should travel at what times, it's harder to step back and take in the economic issues driving the proposed change. And there are technical questions about it as well.
