UNM Professor Examines the Network Neutrality Decision

(Targeted News Service Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., Jan. 23 -- The University of New Mexico issued the following news release: How is your electronic life these days? Are your downloads flowing smoothly? Are your friends getting your texts quickly? Are you satisfied with the cost of your internet access? Bask in it while you can. A U.S. federal appeals court has just changed the rules of the game for electronic communication.

The Federal Communications Commission, the same agency that regulates radio and television classifies broadband as an information service and has required Internet Service Providers to treat all information that flows through the internet equally, something called net neutrality.

UNM assistant professor of Computer Science Patrick Kelley explains it this way.

The ruling was made in a case originally brought by Verizon, which operates one of the largest telephone and internet provider systems in the U.S. It says the FCC cannot enforce network neutrality as it has done the past few years. This means Verizon and other Internet Service Providers may legally choose to deliver some content more rapidly or charge more to deliver some kinds of data such as movies. So will we soon see price increases on our bills? Watch videos: TNS 30TagarumaMar-140124-4612938 30TagarumaMar (c) 2014 Targeted News Service
