Readers love Net neutrality


Our FierceTelecom.com poll on Net neutrality remains open. Specifically, we're looking for your take on Net neutrality following the recent stories about Comcast having delayed some peer-to-peer Internet traffic. Did Comcast do what any operator must do in the broadband era to properly manage its network? Is this purely a cable TV company problem? Or are Comcast's traffic delays proof that more than ever we need stronger Net neutrality policies in place?

So far, 59% of readers who have voted chose Door #3, so maybe the large number of telecom industry people you would have to presume are against Net Neutrality legislation need to rock the vote. About 38% say Comcast did what any network operator has to do. Only 3% viewed Comcast's controversy purely as a cable TV company problem.

This poll will remain active until the Monday after Thanksgiving. - Dan
