edit·history·watch·refresh Stock post message.svg To-do list for Net neutrality:

Here are some tasks you can do:

mobile VoIP[edit]

"Law elsewhere in the world" - Korea

In Korea, blocking VoIP is not a hot issue anymore. As smartphone users are increasing, mobile carriers try to block mobile VoIP services. It is a very controversial emerging issue between 3G mobile carriers and service providers now. Also, this is a major concern on enacting Network Neutrality regulations in Korea. --JungIn (talk) 06:40, 20 January 2012 (UTC)

Hands Off The Internet site outdated[edit]

So, I was looking under the Opposition heading, and saw that an organization, "Hands Off the Internet," had been set up to oppose net neutrality. However, their site, www.handsoff.org, no longer appears to be under their ownership, and is now a German page for general, unrelated topics. Should we add a note about this or remove the link? Unless "handsoff" is German for something, I have the feeling that whoever now owns the site expects to capitalize off the traffic.

The citation that includes the link is currently #49. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Marceau42 (talkcontribs) 18:26, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

Fixed by providing links to the Wayback Machine instead.  « Saper // @talk »  08:21, 18 August 2011 (UTC)

Failed cite[edit]

^ European Commission (13 November 2007). "Impact Assessment on the proposals to amend the European regulatory framework (Working Document)" (PDF). pp. 91. Retrieved 26 December 2008.

This is currently citation #75 and it contains an invalid reference that only opens a GIF image.

Sincerely, [IP]. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.56.168.107 (talk) 22:05, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

Fixed by providing a proper link to the PDF document.  « Saper // @talk »  08:21, 18 August 2011 (UTC)

Essay/Re-write header[edit]

Article needs a re-write; the entire summary/opening paragraphs are incredibly bias - the pro net neutrality position is put forth just fine, but the arguments against net neutrality are almost straw-men arguments. The arguments are put up, then immediately refuted, with debateable evidence. This is not the way to write a non-biased article; one side can't be unrefuted, while the other is pummeled, especially not before the reader has ever gotten past the first two paragraphs 67.78.144.22 (talk) 14:53, 12 December 2011 (UTC)

Bad WOT Ratings?[edit]

A few of the resources have bad Web of Trust ratings. Should these be removed, in the interest increasing article-quality? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sweyn78 (talkcontribs) 22:48, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

– Net neutrality has been far and away the most common term for this. Both the net neutrality and network neutrality articles existed for a time until they were merged. NY Times CNET Marcus Qwertyus (talk) 16:11, 25 December 2012 (UTC)

  • Support.[1] Apteva (talk) 05:45, 26 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose – Counting occurrences in newspaper headlines is obviously a poor methodology for making such a choice. Recognizability and precision would suggest that sticking with the more meaningful and precise term network will benefit our readers, compared to the ambiguous term net that has been used in connection with neutrality with completely different meanings, as in this book, this book, and many others like them. Check book n-grams to see that the full word is almost as common as the shortened one (and in many books, the concept will be introduced by the full term before switching to the short, so the full term is more than well justified per COMMONNAME). See this book, this, this, this, for a few examples. Dicklyon (talk) 17:02, 26 December 2012 (UTC)
    • In your ngram, "net neutrality" exceeds "network neutrality", but you then point out that most sources that use the former would also use the latter in introduction. I don't see how that's possible given the results; indeed, only if the latter exceeded the former would it make sense to discount the disparity due to duplication. Powers T 22:53, 30 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Is this about a particular network (the Internet) or any (computer) network (including the Internet)..? If the former, perhaps "Net neutrality" might be preferable – if "Net" is likely to be read in this context as an abbreviation of "Internet"... CsDix (talk) 01:44, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
It's definitely about the Internet, but also about the various companies' networks that make up the Internet, which is where the opportunities for non-neutrality are. So network, which is what it comes from and is short for. Dicklyon (talk) 01:56, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Support; the abbreviated form is vastly more common. Powers T 22:53, 30 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Support as per nom. -Kai445 (talk) 08:38, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

2014 court ruling in federal appeals court[edit]

Headline: "Court Rejects Rules on Net Neutrality"

  • [2] and "Court Tosses FCC's 'Net Neutrality' Rules"

"A federal appeals court opened the way for broadband providers to charge content companies for faster speeds, striking down federal rules that had required equal treatment of Internet traffic." 31 min ago — FYI, Charles Edwin Shipp (talk) 01:30, 15 January 2014 (UTC)

Subtle trolling or just bad style?[edit]

The "Mixed and other views" section has 10 instances of the word "applications" in a single paragraph, and my display puts "applications" as the first word in 5 successive lines. i.imgur.com/6Ve2Pzl.png It's sort of distracting. Forbes72 (talk) 04:12, 24 March 2014 (UTC)
