Why we should care about Net Neutrality

Nov 19, 2009

We came across a great article on Broadsoft’s blog about Net Neutrality. There is a huge power struggle going on between the companies that provide internet service and companies that provide services that require the internet.

Voice over IP (VoIP) is just one of the thousands of services that require an internet connection.

One of the biggest issues being contested is the ability of internet service providers to favor their own content or limit access to content based on type. For example, Comcast, one of the leading internet service providers also provides internet phone service or VoIP, without a truly neutral internet, Comcast would be able to block other VoIP Providers such as Vonage.

Allowing internet service providers to limit consumers access to certain types of content, or favor their own brands would have a chilling effect on our entire economy.

For those of you who are not familiar with Broadsoft, BroadSoft is the leading, worldwide innovator of Voice over IP (VoIP) applications that are transforming how people connect, communicate and collaborate.
