They're both rolling out IPTV -- or Internet television -- in essence, ultrafast broadband capable of delivering high-definition video streams. Most of all, if deployment isn't a paying proposition, deployment won't take place, and mandatory nondiscrimination threatens to undermine the economics of the new broadband initiatives. Morgan Stanley telecom analyst Simon Flannery already is warning clients that the Bell projects "could be delayed or possibly terminated" as investors look askance at the billions being thrown at business models with uncertain payoffs. Where's Microsoft in this debate? With a host of e-commerce companies, it has adopted a defensive posture, adding its voice to those of Google, Amazon, eBay and Barry Diller's InterActiveCorp demanding that "net neutrality" (the new definition of "open access") be written into any new telecom law.

The term net, or network, neutrality is the idea that internet providers should treat all internet content equally. Net neutrality prohibits discrimination based on the content, user, platform, etc. This principle is based on the idea that the internet providers should be considered as common carriers. Common carriers provide a service without discrimination to the general public, whereas contract and private carriers can refuse to provide a service to consumers at their own discretion. The term network neutrality was coined by Tim Wu, a Columbia professor in 2003 (Wu 2003).
Did the benefits outweigh the risks in this particular situation? Was the government right in the first place when they had implemented this internet censorship? Too many questions one might think, but apparently, these are the truths about the internet censorship and its being the most controversial measure that the government had decided to counter and protect people from the harms of internet as the newest form of communication media (Zuchora-Walske, 2010, p. 2). Internet censorship has taken many forms as the new generation progressed – being more techy and savvy than ever.

Net neutrality, as defined by the Oxford English Dictionary, is “the fact or principle of Internet service providers enabling access to all content and applications regardless of the source or destination, and without favoring or blocking particular formats, products, web sites, etc.” (net, n.1). That means that if two users share a common Internet Service Provider (ISP), they are entitled to the same quality of service regardless of data size. If one user is downloading large music files, while the other is sending an email, their quality of service should be the same. Net neutrality laws are important and necessary because they protect against Internet Service Providers forming monopolies on the market, screening the content a user can view, and stifling freedom of speech. By shooting down the FCC’s Open Internet Act, doors have been opened to Internet Service Providers to be price hungry merchants, ultimately hurting content providers and customers alike.

Network neutrality essentially means that all data gets treated the same by an ISP or service, whether it be an incoming email or a gigantic video file, it’s is based on the principle that Internet users should be in control of what content they view and what applications they choose to use on the Internet. The Internet has operated according to this neutrality principle since its earliest days. In other words, net neutrality is about equal access to the Internet in terms of overall speed. Just as telephone companies are not permitted to tell consumers who they can call or what they can say, broadband carriers should not be allowed to use their market power to control activity online.
