Net Neutrality

...Current policies and practices pertaining to “net neutrality” in the Canadian context. Why or Why not is “net neutrality” an important principle? Orlando Desmond D’Souza 103455783 Dr. Valerie Scatamburlo-D'annibale Introduction to Media and Society: 40-101-01 Tuesday October 25, 2011 Net Neutrality also known as Network Neutrality is one of the most highly debated topic of the century. The debate is fundamentally based on the future of the Internet and the role it would play in the society. It has received a great deal of attention from various people including telecommunication experts, certain political representatives as well as the press. It mainly states that Internet Service providers (ISP’s) must treat all data sources equally. In other words it means that the users of the internet must have the freedom to access the internet without any restrictions put upon them by the ISP’s. The term ‘net neutrality’ is defined in a number of ways by different communities, companies and individuals. Barratt and Shade stressed upon another condition that; there are no means by which centralized mechanisms can be used to control the Internet. Moreover Moll and Shade argued that the corporations that own networks have no control of the information that runs through them (Moll & Shade, 2008: VIII). Many organizations and companies try to use it in various forms. There are several examples on net neutrality with respect to Canada with one of them being the Telus issue....

Net Neutrality

...poorer sites, and the toll could turn away any website they like. Internet service providers are trying to push for this kind of internet, a money based internet where they don’t have to show any competitors websites at all. This doesn't sound like a good thing for the internet we know and love. In order to protect the fundamental principle that the internet was based on, and small web-based companies, net neutrality Must be protected and preserved. To understand why Net Neutrality must be preserved first you have to understand it, the economics of it, the arguments against the system, and the effect its change would have on small web-based companies. Net Neutrality can be defined very simply, that all websites are treated equally and distributed to the consumer or business equally. According to Tim wu, a professor at Columbia law School, he says on his personal website article Network Neutrality FAQ “The idea is that a maximally useful public information network aspires to treat all content, sites, and platforms equally.” What he is saying here is that basic concept of Net Neutrality is that no matter what provider, or platform (computer, tablet, or phone e.t.c) all content must be treated with equal delivery privileges. In other words, large companies can’t buy the top internet delivery speeds, leaving small web-based companies in the dust. However the United states Government has introduced bills, specifically The Internet Preservation Act, that do allow for......

...teachers with lesson plans, presentations, and research. Although, a few of NETS standards could be quite difficult for some students to grasp, others are right on target. I feel students that are completing P-K through second should easily acquire the skills that it takes to illustrate and communicate ideas and stories, as well as, engage in learning activities with other learners. However, demonstrating safe and cooperative use of technology and communicating about technology using adequate terminology might be more difficult at his grade level. Now that technology has been around for a while more students are starting pre-k already able to use the computer and the internet. This definitely is a plus for teachers. It is a kick start to a more detailed use of technology that will able the student to become more skilled and reach grade level milestones. After students complete the second grade the standards/ skills above should be mastered. This will prepare them for the next milestone of learning standards set for the next grade level.   References Grimes, Robbie; Smith, Susan (2004) the Impact of Standards Based Technology Professional Development.

Keywords: gross domestic product (GDP), employment trends, inflation, consumer price index (CPI)   Taking it to the Net So how do you forecast a company’s sales for the next two years? What kind of data do you review to make an educated forecast? A company’s future sales can be determined by many different factors, some of these factors include: the gross domestic product in the United States, employment trends in the manufacturing industry and the consumer price index. The state of Illinois’ employment trends will also be discussed and what economic changes have inclined the changes in them.

Net Neutrality

...2014 The Internet has come a long way since being brought up around the world. Millions of people access the internet for many uses such as communicating with friends and family, accessing vital information, paying bills, online shopping, and the list goes on and on. But there is now one phenomenon that many people are unaware of, net neutrality. Net neutrality is the paradigm where ISP providers and governments restrict the access from certain Internet web sites to the public. Web sites should be open to everybody browsing on the Internet and not be restricted. We can look in depth to this dilemma by using ethical theories to help us out. When it comes to utilitarian position regarding net neutrality, many sites should be restricted because it is the greatest good for the greatest number of people. But when it comes to the deontologist position regarding net neutrality all sites should be able to be accessed with no restrictions because it should adhere to the obligations and duties of ISP providers and governments (Boulos, 2008). Utilitarian ethics has the basis to get the greatest good for the greatest number of people. When it comes to net neutrality this means blocking or restricting many web sites to the millions of users. These decisions are made by ISP providers and by governments. For example Verizon has been paying money to ISP companies to make their bandwidth larger so it could be faster than other competing companies, giving them the upper hand (Bloomberg......

Net Neutrality are one of India’s active netizens, it is unlikely that the words Net Neutrality have escaped your daily dose of social media updates and news. The debate, which gained pace post AIB’s video on the topic and news of the Airtel Zero programme, has seen some of the biggest names in the Internet and media industries give their take on the issue. More importantly, last month India’s telecom regulator TRAI came out with a consultation paper on the growth of Over-the-top (OTT) players like WhatsApp or Skype and is looking at exploring a regulatory framework for these apps. In essence, Net Neutrality implies that all Internet data pack should be treated equally, that there should be no fast or slow lanes for Internet, or that users should pay differently for accessing some websites. While online activists and even big Internet companies in India like ClearTrip, Flipkart, have come out to support Net Neutrality, the debate isn’t really as simple when it comes to India. He says the telecos’ argument about loss revenue due to rise of OTT’s isn’t a legitimate one but adds that instead of going for more regulation TRAI can look to reduce some differential regulations for telecos to make things easier for them. There’s also a growing belief that TRAI hasn’t acted fairly when it comes to its paper on OTTs. The Internet and Mobile Association of India (IAMAI) has slammed TRAI saying OTTs are already regulated and governed by the IT Act. A statement issued by IAMAI President Subho......

Net Nuetrality

...Running Head: Net Neutrality | Net Neutrality | | SS31508/3/2015 | | | | Introduction Is net neutrality really what we want? That is a major question that is being asked across the country. Some say it is much needed, and there are others who say that it could be detrimental to quite a few people, and could have disastrous results. However, in order to know whether net neutrality is a good thing or a bad thing for the country we must first define what it is and how it is being used or implemented. What is Net Nuetrality? Net neutrality is the concept that everybody should have the same access as everyone else. There are a few things that are incorporated into this concept. No blocking will be allowed with net neutrality. This means that “If a consumer requests access to a website or service, and the content is legal, your ISP (internet service provider) should not be permitted to block it. That way, every player — not just those commercially affiliated with an ISP — gets a fair shot at your business”. Throttling will also not be allowed. ISPs will not be able to slow down some content, and speed up others, usually based on the type of service or the ISPs preference. There will also be no paid prioritization, meaning that no service will be slowed down or not prioritized because they do not pay a set fee. Positives Many people feel strongly to have net neutrality in place. President Barack Obama says “I am a strong supporter of net neutrality … What...

Net Neutrality

...Net Neutrality is the principle that internet service providers should enable access to all content and applications regardless of the source, and without favoring or blocking particular products or websites. The internet was all new territory so it was not properly regulated when the Internet was invented. The providers abused the system and would prioritize larger businesses over the smaller businesses. In a lot of people’s eyes, they were bordering on unethical business practices. These net neutrality problems, ironically, lead to an uprising on the internet and thousands of people started to recognize the inconsistencies in the fine print. This was mainly brought on by what happened to Netflix. In order to force Netflix to buy a more expensive service, Comcast slowed down the speeds for Netflix customers by an incredible amount. I have Comcast and have experienced these slowed speeds first hand. At one point my videos spent more time buffering then the video lasted. This uproar on the internet lead to the Obama administration approving very strong net neutrality rules. President Obama even thanked Reddit, the self-proclaimed “Front Page of the Internet”, for its community activism on the issue. However, even though the rules have been approved, Telecom and many cable companies are challenging the Obama Administration’s actions in court. This issue is far from Net Neutrality can be good for a business in a lot of ways. For example, a small stock broking firm that has......

Net Neutrality

...access to certain applications or websites on the internet and it would essentially turn into what we see our cable companies in the US doing. I cannot tolerate the way our cable companies operate in the US and refuse to pay for such a service. Cable providers have turned into a closed system where they control or have a say in all of the content that you view. Without net neutrality, internet service providers would be able to charge excess fees to larger companies that require more data use and would essentially hurt the customer. It would hurt the customer because with these larger companies like Netflix and Amazon having to pay excess fees, they would be forced to put the burden of those fees on us, the customers. No net neutrality will hurt future online companies trying to emerge into successful businesses. Online businesses will become scarce due to high barriers being introduced by internet service providers. This is not something I want to see happen. I personally do a lot of business online. Selling products on eBay, purchasing products from other websites. One of the few fears I do have about this new net neutrality bills is how it will affect the way the internet operates down the road. With the internet currently not being regulated by anybody, it is continually growing by the minute. One of the WGBH News videos with Dan Primack, has a theory that this will slow down the growth of bandwidth speed. This will not be a good outcome for the future in my opinion.......

Drift Nets

...Drift nets or gill nets are large nets for capturing fish. They hang vertically in the water column by weights at the bottom and are allowed to drift with the tide. Because drift netting can capture a large quantity of fish at the same time, it is a method that is commonly used to catch tuna, swordfish and salmon. Gill netting is so effective that their use is closely monitored and regulated by fisheries management and enforcement agencies. Fish can be caught in several ways from tangled in the net to held by the mesh slipping behind the opercula of the fish. During a trial driftnet fishery in Canadian waters in 1987, one vessel killed more than 200 sea mammals and 1000 birds. After this experiment, Canada refused to permit driftnet fishing. Without doubt, drift netting is not only detrimental to wildlife species but it is tremendously wasteful. About half of the catch either falls back into the water as the nets are being retrieved or is crushed to useless pulp by tons of fish and successfully retrieved fish are usually damaged and must be sold at a reduced price. However, there are countries and regions who have taken this into consideration and reduced this problem. For example, the European Union banned the use of drift nets for no longer than 2.5 km. Some organizations such as North Pacific Anadromous Fish Commission (NPAFC) that include Canada, the United States, the Russian Federation, Korea and Japan have already been monitoring four million square kilometres of the......

Net Neutrality

...all types of information. This is why the internet today is vastly growing as one of the most popular innovations on the planet, all made possible by Net Neutrality. The argument that is going on states; that service providers can charge websites a fee for faster data transmission then others. Net neutrality states consumers should have access to lawful internet content; run applications and services of their choice; use equipment of their choice without interference from the provider. In the argument on net neutrality it is stated that people should have access to lawful internet at any time. As it stands right now the internet providers’ job is to transmit packets of data, but not to choose which packets to give higher quality service. Major internet service providers such as AT&T, Verizon, Comcast and Time Warner want to act as gatekeepers and decide which web sites would either load up fast or load slowly. These providers want to create an “express” lane for their own content or other services that is seen fit. For example if AT&T favored the Yahoo! Search engine over Google; the Yahoo! Search engine would load faster than Google. This doesn’t coincide with net neutrality simply because it does not give users the option to choose what services they would like to utilize, or what content they would like to view. Net neutrality makes a strong point that the internet needs to be an open and level playing field to drive innovation; a reason why the internet has......
