ABSTRACT
The article discusses net neutrality regulations to be implemented in the U.S. Internet network providers are required to give equal treatment to all traffic on their networks under the regulation. Net neutrality regulations prohibit the offering of services with which providers could have certain kinds of faster traffic. Fear of discrimination is the reason behind the efforts of outfits such as Google to convince the U.S. Congress and the Federal Communications Commission to bar faster services.
