Net Neutrality Update

In 2006, politicians and “netizens” from around the country turned their attention to the issue of network neutrality. As Congress weighed both sides of the argument, the team at Digital Brand Expressions kept a close eye on proceedings and blogged about our take on the network neutrality bill.

After months of back-and-forth, the end of the 109th Congress marks the death of Sen. Ted Stevens’ anti-net neutrality telecom bill. Although this is positive news for SEOs and other supporters of a free and open Internet, it’s only one step on the path toward ensuring the protection of net neutrality.

Without legislation that specifically preserves our Internet freedoms, the future of the Internet is still in question. Legislators must work toward a compromise that not only meaningfully defends net neutrality, but also takes into consideration the needs of the broadband providers --- creating a win-win situation for both consumers and the industry.

In the year to come, DBE will continue to follow the net neutrality debate. Check back to our blog in the future for additional insight and updates.
