Reasonable Network Management

Grace period / Update policies

To quote wired (http://www.wired.com/epicenter/2009/10/fcc-net-neutrality/) “Broadband providers must not block users from sending legal content on the net.” This is not the issue—we all agree that business shall not block competitor’s websites. AT&T should not prevent Sprint.com from loading. This topic has confused the issue. Some people are proponents of net neutrality solely for this reason. There can be ISP regulation without preventing content. Bandwidth regulations for types of content are OK. The ISPs have oversold their services and we have to accept what has been done. They need a chance to upgrade their infrastructure so as to allow these modifications to go into effect. Users should be made aware of what regulations are placed on their networks and I feel an ISP should update users via email their current net management policies and update on future modifications. No one wants to lose their unlimited internet.
