Abstract

In the debate over network neutrality, the real issue of consequence is how owners of broadband access networks will shift their business models away from a subscriber-funded model to a model that relies more on advertising. That clash with the other players in the market is the heart of the network neutrality controversy.

Keywords: network neutrality
