The author reflects on issues concerning the proposed net neutrality for Internet protocol technologies in the U.S. The author cited that supporters of net neutrality claim for open Internet services, wherein Internet carriers will use pricing in favor of their own content over the content from competitors. However, the author commented that net neutrality supporters' competitors are big companies, such as AT&T Corp. and Verizon Corp., who both claimed that their sizes would not deter them from fulfilling their mission in the industry.
