Patrik Fältström and Netnod have provided a sterling example of how to correct the misframing of issues related to “managed services” or “specialized services.” Read the submission itself for a perfect illustration of how drawing the distinction correctly leads the way to policy insight.
(from Netnod’s blog.)
Netnod has filed a response to the Public Consultation on specific aspects of transparency, traffic management and switching in an Open Internet that DG Communications Networks, Content and Technology use for information gathering for the Commission’s planned recommendations that commissioner Kroes announced on May 29 2012.
In summary, Netnod does believe further work is required to clarify the use of the term ‘Internet Access’. Netnod does however urge caution since Netnod does not agree with some conclusions. This as Netnod does believe some of the concepts described, related to congestion control and Quality of Service, are not applicable in a packet based network.
