Net Neutrality in Age of Expansion
What is net neutrality? As one site puts it, it is:
“…the idea that every packet of information â€” a piece of an email, a piece of an mp3 of a radio broadcast â€” carries equal importance. That is, a message from me moves no faster or slower over the Internet than a message from the Queen. Or from CNN…”
It is no secret that the Internet is vast and it’s growing at a tremendous pace. With increase in size, unless capacity catches up, there will have to be compromises, in terms of resources. We are yet to discover how the entry of developing countries will change the terrain of the Web.
In other news, expect China to have 60 million bloggers by end of 2006.
