Net neutrality: How to spot an arts graduate in a tech debate

Re: Re: Just another attempt

I have lived in a country where the telephone monopoly deliberately downgraded skype traffic so that you would have to use their higher-priced phone service.

That's a pretty clear example of a non-neutral network.

Non-neutrality is like monopolistic behaviour in a business context; Sometimes it is easier to spot - sometimes it is more subtle and harder to spot - but it is still a bad thing, and we do well to make it illegal.
