Carter not 'net neutral'

March 12, 2009

Talking before a UK Parliamentary committee Comms Minister Lord Carter continued to hint net neutrality would not be a foundation of his Digital Britain report. Having already assured BT its investment in NGN would be recognised and protected, he said "Our emerging view is that it is not unreasonable for a network provider to be able to differentiate in its pricing and charging for services. It gets slightly more complicated when you get into the question of active filtering and traffic management but the differentiation of pricing depending on speed of delivery I think is perfectly legitimate.”
