No Network Neutrality, No Internet… And That’s Just What Telcos Want

The network neutrality debate has been heating up as of late, and with hearings today, it’s no surprise to be hearing more about it. The always interesting Daniel Berninger has written up a good analysis on Om Malik’s site explaining why the internet doesn’t exist without network neutrality, while suggesting that’s exactly what the telcos want. It’s not so much about squeezing more money out of the likes of Google and others, but in killing off what makes the internet useful… which allows them (they think) to go back their older business model which is clearly under attack from the internet. Of course, most people recognize that this will never happen — but that won’t stop the telcos from making a mess of things in the meantime.
