Net neutrality is all good and fine; the real problem is elsewhere: Misra
Net neutrality is all good and fine; the real problem is elsewhere | Dept. of Computer Science, Columbia University: "Using more sophisticated modeling, Ma and Misra are able to show that even under tightly regulated net-neutrality, monopolies increase their profits when bandwidth is scarce. However, the introduction of a public-option ISP changes the equation. Under a scenario that includes a public-option ISP, profits become tied to market share, thus incentivizing ISPs to increase bandwidth to make themselves more attractive to customers. If the existing ISP employs some non-neutral strategies, consumers have the option to move to a network-neutral public ISP." 'via Blog this'
