dc.description.abstract Over the last decade in the United States network neutrality has evolved from a primarily technical concern to a national debate about the future of American communications regulation as well as technology and innovation policy in general. In October 2009 the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to codify six principles of network neutrality. This proceeding which is unlikely to be completed before mid-2010 could have profound economic consequences for consumers content and applications providers and network operators.Network neutrality is a shorthand for a series of policy prescriptions that would restrict the ability of broadband internet service providers (ISPs) to manage network traffic. These restrictions include barring network operators from charging content and applications providers (as opposed to end users) for entering into business-to-business transactions for quality-of-service (QoS) enhancements for packet delivery. Although the initial objective for advocates of network neutrality regulation was to secure regulation of wireline networks the debate has expanded since its inception to include wireless networks. en_NZ
