Medianama has a good analysis and initiative on the Net Neutrality issue. Read up and make yourselves heard here.

This debate has had interesting arguments globally. To the extent, I have been able to follow, there have been a ton of bogus arguments on both sides, thereby confusing the core issues. In my mind, the core issues are around (a) adherence to standard protocols to ensure that applications can rely upon the same; (b) creation of open communication platforms, as a goal in itself, to spur innovation around those networks; (c) clear communication around inclusions, exclusions, and dampeners in any given telecom package – an issue of consumer protection; (d) curbing monopolies that can be promoted by telecom service providers also being in app business and providing unfair advantage to their own apps/services.
