Neutral Web Hosting Network

By Staff

I am sure that good number among you will have heard the expression “neutrality of network” rebounded around much. But what does it mean exactly to be neutral? What approximately give is this ISPs a kick to the top of such an agitation? , Since \ “COM of point bubble \” burst, thus to speak well, we had with a terrible fate of the infrastructure and bandwidth to be played. This, and the massive bearing out of connections with wide strip of Internet by technologies such as the cable and the ADSL have to lead to a fast increase in the quantity and type of contents on the Web. Seven years ago it could take minutes to charge a page with a modem 56K if it had more than some small JPEGs on top.

Now, the studies show that on average us \ 'about disappointed if a page takes more than three seconds to the load. We have digital images everywhere in the resolutions, the radio of Internet and podcasting is not in abundance widespread (although apparently under the threat) and and run of videos the landscape on line. We appreciate the contents the richest Internet or any other service of media forever been able to provide. The majority of the sites on the Web actuate a similar model now above, deriving their incomes from publicity rather than content subscriptions.

 And the majority among us are enue ven to hope not to pay (at least directly) the contents which we look above the Internet. Each one is happy. ISPs obtain a regular monthly income of us, the content providers obtain the regular jets of the viewers and produce incomes of advertisement, and we obtain our child with a pointer of ball of golf like sabres light. But dark times are ahead… While our system running functions well, it seems that not each one is as happy as we thought. ISPs seem to want little one more. During much of ISPs years provided their own services of Internet as well as to provide connection. AOL has its system of research, instantaneous customer of messenger, and has even required the use of its own navigator during a certain time (although it was only Internet Explorer carrying a pretty costume). And much of other companies associations with the content providers have. With RU where I live, British Telecom (BT) is in association with Yahoo, and while none of its devices is obligatory on us, there is a clear polarization so that BT supports the contents of Yahoo. Maintaining ISPs call the current system \ “unjust. \” they say \ “what they [content providers] would like to do must use my free pipes \” (a direct quotation of Edouard Whitacre,

PRESIDENT de Banc split Corp -- the group which now has large the ISP AT&T of American). And in a recent report/ratio, the search for Jupiter concluded that an Internet on two levels can be presented at RU, with ISPs unable to resist the temptation of the invoicing the access at the two ends. And here I thanked my lucky beginnings that this would affect only the USA! What this means? Wells they say effectively that they want that no matter who of the data of transmission along their cables is charged. This rather honestly seems one to claim on the first sight, but when you seem deeper, you see that it simply wouldn \ 'work of T. The model suggested where the debtors of fees can carry out higher rates of bandwidth by an ISP \ the 'system of S will be carried out by the normal traffic simply limiting device to lower speeds. They aren \ 'T creating a news higher line to pay customers, they force no matter whom who does not pay on a line lower than we have now. This has large worried companies of Internet like Google and Microsoft.

 Almost all Google \ the 'incomes of S come generation from advertisement of form by their Search Engine, with their other projects to help just there to draw the users Po. If they were forced to function at more reduced speeds, the light gauge of page even of Google \ 'of S without frozen is added or of the banners would be affected. And with that would you say of all this splendor we are employed? What would you say video running of 24/7, the radio of Internet, the images and the guides without end, blogs and run of instruction, reviews, forum, rooms of talk and instantaneous transmission of messages with far with far from the friends? Which of Wikipedia? They because a charitable body have the any \ “returned \” as such, donations right and patronage to keep they and to run to them of waiters.

How will they be able with the fees wages to make it possible people to reach their site? What we are most likely to see, though, will not be an all-out blocking of non-conformist cheapskate companies, but something similar to what has been implemented by ISPs in response to Bit-Torrent and other high bandwidth peer-to-peer applications: traffic shaping.

This would simply mean that the ISPs set up monitors to restrict traffic from companies on a \"black list\" and prioritize companies who pay their way. It makes me wonder though. How would a system of charging the provider work on an international level? No one company individually owns much of the Internet backbone (the infrastructure of international connections, via high bandwidth fiber optics). And can you really insist that a content provider can\'t use your part of the network without paying? It could work at a local level where individual ISPs define \"using their pipes\" as sending content to one of their customers, but once the international backbones start being used, what\'s going to happen? The majority of web servers in the world are located in the USA. Are Europeans going to be left out of American content because the companies won\'t pay the fees to get fast speeds across the Atlantic link? Are the content providers going to be expected to pay each and every major ISP to allow their traffic to go anywhere? What about countries like India and China with rapidly increasing numbers of Internet users? Are they going to want to pay the fees? Will the Chinese government just take the opportunity to shut the world out completely? Being from the UK, I have hope that the European Union will step in and prevent such a disaster. They have taken a hard line on Microsoft for abusing their monopoly of the operating system market to force other services onto consumers, so perhaps they will listen to reason and not the corporate lackeys when the opportunity to ensure network neutrality comes up in their oh-so-busy schedule.

Yes, content providers are providing the infrastructure for the Internet; however much of it was there to begin with after the dot-com boom and subsequent burst. Many of the smaller ISPs in the UK only rent the broadband equipment and lines from BT (British Telecom, former state-owned telecommunication company before privatization). The Internet backbone itself is owned by the largest companies and also in part by governments across the world. To be net neutral, the ISPs must allow a paying end-user to access any part of the Internet. They merely provide the access to whatever else is connected to the network. The problem is they are starting to see content providers as end-users as well. The very essence of the problem is that the network providers don\'t want anyone to use their part of the network without paying for it. While it may seem like the market could allow competitiveness, this isn\'t what it\'s offering. What happens when small start-ups can\'t get to anyone without paying fees? These are on top of their content production costs, the cost of hosting said content, and the cost of paying one of the ISPs once already for a connection and bandwidth. It\'s not like the content providers are not already paying for their access. However what is being proposed is that they should pay all of the ISPs, not just the one providing them with a local connection, but every single one that owns the backbone cabling. But what happens when there is no \"new MySpace\" to attract people? What happens when all people are offered is one company for searches and so forth through their ISP? What happens when they can\'t watch videos, listen to Internet radio, see wild pictures and read random babble about someone else\'s life? If the ISPs only thought about why we all go onto the Internet, and understood that we are all more than just a set of numbers that seem to endlessly want to pay them money for offering this connection, then they\'d think twice about neutering it. They fail to see that we aren't really paying to have a cable. We are paying to get to what\'s on the other end of the cable, and just put up with the ISPs to get it.
