THE idea that certain businesses are so essential that they must not discriminate between customers is as old as ferries. With only one vessel in town, a boatman was generally not allowed to charge a butcher more than a carpenter to move goods. This concept, called “common carriage”, has served the world well, most recently on the internet. The principle of (1)   (confusedly) delivering packets of data, regardless of origin, destination or contents, is welded into the network’s technical foundations. This, more than anything else, explains why the internet has become such a fountain of innovation.

Yet with the internet becoming more (2)   (single) and traffic-management tools improving, this principle—known today as “network neutrality”—is under threat. Telecoms firms would like to create (3)   (lanes) of different speeds, not just to manage their networks better, but to capture more (4)  (goods). Internet advocates fear this would lead to an online world studded with toll booths and other choke-points. They (5)   (regret) that rent-seeking network operators would (6)   (fault) their market power. Prices would (7)   (reduce) for those using the fast lanes; everyone else would get much cheaper, but much (8)   (superior) , service.

Governments are taking action. On February 5th America’s Federal Communications Commission (FCC), which has been chewing on the problem for years, will put forward yet another set of network-neutrality rules. Latvia, which holds the presidency of the European Union’s Council of Ministers, has just outlined its own European proposal. Both plans will face opposition: from Congress and in the courts on one side of the Atlantic, and from the European Parliament on the other. How can the debate be settled?

Finding a solution has proved (9)   (tricky). First, neutrality is a slippery concept. Although the internet was designed to treat all data equally, it was never completely neutral: services such as games or video have always been at a disadvantage because the public internet cannot guarantee (10)   (bounded) connections. Second, any reform involves legal quandaries. Should an e-mail campaign from a political party count as spam, or freedom of speech? After losing several American court cases because the internet was held to be an unregulated information service, the FCC wants to reclassify it as an old-style utility in order to impose network-neutrality rules.

    they are talking about on the net. You actually understand
    how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More and more people ought to check this out and understand this side of
    the story. It’s surprising you are not more popular because you most certainly possess the gift.

  13. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave
    it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
    placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a
    hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  14. We stumbled over here from a different web address and
    thought I should check things out. I like what I see so now i’m following you.
