Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon today introduced legslation that would ban network operators from charging sites for extra bandwidth. The law would also ban the practice of favoring some content providers over others. That, according to the New York Times.
So this is the next step in the two speed internet battle. Ron’s bill is called the Internet Non-Discrimination Act of 2006, I’m sure it’ll have a rough ride as the Telco’s have a lot of cash and influence. [via]
