The Purpose of Net Neutrality Regulations (a) Blocking, Degrading, Interfering with Content and Applications (b) Discriminatory Network Management Practices (c) Access Tiering or Price Discrimination Among Content Applications Providers (d) Discriminatory Pricing of Consumer Access Service 2.
The prime rule championed by Lessig is to prohibit access tiering by forbidding high speed Internet access providers from contracting with content and applications providers for packet delivery or enhanced Quality of Service ("QoS"), even if the provider desires it and is willing and able to pay.
Net neutrality proponents speak of "access tiering"--that is, offering tiered levels of QoS at different prices--as if it is some hypothetical strategy that will be employed at some future date to foreclose unaffiliated content providers.
To date, the debate has focused primarily on a type of discrimination known as "access tiering," in which network owners charge Web sites and application providers more for premium (i.e., higher speed) service.
Access tiering, that is the charging of different fees, or the establishment of different terms and conditions to content, services, or applications providers for access to the broadband pipe is the focus of the net neutrality policy debate.
