It's Comcastic: So much for Net Neutrality

Posted in The Gnovis Blog

Network neutrality may be an unattainable ideal. And many people may not even know what it means, perhaps even the people directly involved. I certainly don’t feel that I know what net neutrality truly means, because it’s much more complicated on a practical level than it might seem.

From simple pricing structures that effectively regulate content access, to outright monitoring and blocking, "neutrality," can be affected in many ways.

But I do know that what Comcast appears to be doing (new window) certainly violates any notion of net neutrality that we might hope to attain. Such practices are incredibly unsettling, and yet not very surprising.
