The article analyzes the proposed net neutrality conditions for the Internet by U.S. President Barack Obama. The author says that this proposal should be dropped forthwith because it makes no sense ban higher prices for premium services. He emphasizes that pricing constraints discourage service providers from investing extra to provide the higher-performance services. He stresses that net neutrality will be most damaging in mobile because wireless capacity is inherently constrained.
