NCTA “Net Neutrality cannot apply to managed nets”
October 13, 2010
The US National Cable & Telecommunications Association (NCTA) has filed its contribution to the Net Neutrality debate with the FCC. It said that the FCC should not expand and codify its network neutrality rules at all, but if it does, it should apply them only to a “clearly defined broadband Internet access service” and not a managed service, which is not delivered via the public Internet.
The NCTA also argues against the ‘Google / AT&T compromise’, saying it is “arbitrary and capricious” to apply rules to wired ISPS while exempting wireless gateways.
