The article explores alternative solutions to technical challenges associated with net neutrality in the U.S. Users and Internet content providers are claiming for net neutrality because of the lack of real competition. The author suggests that Internet operators should keep adding bandwidth to their local access networks and keep congestion at the network in order to satisfy their customers. He added that peer-to-peer traffic during peak period should be limited, while letting it have a free operation during off-peak period. Caspian Networks Inc. has also introduced Media Controller, a product that can provide both fairness and&or prioritization among individual flow of information.
