Net Neutrality and Web Hosting
The following is commentary by i2Coalition Chairman Christian Dawson and originally appeared on Site5 Blog.
My name is Christian Dawson and in addition to heading up operations at a web hosting company myself, I am Chairman and co-founder of the Internet Infrastructure Coalition, or i2Coalition. My friends at Site5 asked me to guest blog for them about Net Neutrality, to try to put some context around the things that you have surely been reading over the past few weeks, months and years. I want to explain a little about what Net Neutrality is, and then put it in context with how the Web Hosting industry works – to show not just that Net Neutrality is important and needs to be preserved, but also that broadband providers are unique in the Internet ecosystem, and saying that they need to be regulated doesn’t mean that we need to regulate the rest of the Internet.
