Abstract

Net Neutrality is not about limiting or delaying investment in Next Generation Networks (NGN) by somehow stifling network innovation, as some would have us believe. It is in fact about ensuring that what comes out of NGN rollout is what end-users want, and what will continue to fuel the economy, social progress, and the further enablement of (new and better) ways to enjoy freedoms of communication and expression.

Keywords: Net Neutrality, open Internet, European legislation, Internet users' freedoms, public policy solutions
