Day 5: Net Neutrality and Internet Architecture

by Samantha Bates Show/Hide

We increasingly assume the availability of commodity networking — a flat fee for access — even as the way in which we experience the Internet is evolving through a curious microeconomics, a mishmash of policies designed to subsidize or regulate access, and a sometime ability to arbitrage around arrangements through technologies to facilitate access sharing and virtual tunneling.

How is Internet access likely to evolve, and what choices exist for polities with particular ideals about how it should work?

Discussion will include Andy Ellis, Berkman Klein Center Fellow and CSO of Akamai, one of the most important companies that people haven’t heard of.
