Network Neutrality and Quality of Service: What a Non-Discrimination Rule Should Look Like


In this paper, from the Center for Internet and Society, author Barbara van Schewick proposes a framework that policy makers and others can use to choose among different options for network neutrality rules and uses this framework to evaluate existing proposals for non-discrimination rules and the non-discrimination rule adopted by the FCC in its Open Internet Order.
