Well, I haven’t read the full contents of this bill, but there are a couple of things that I do really like about what I have read. Also, I am not sure if this needs to pass the Senate now or what, (politics and legal process are not my specialty), but I think this is a major step forward in the Net Neutrality issue. One of the provisions that I really enjoy, as long as I am reading it correctly, is Sec. 28(a)(4). of the bill.
Sec. 28. (a) It shall be unlawful for any broadband network provider–(4) to prohibit a user from attaching or using a device on the provider’s network that does not physically damage or materially degrade other users’ utilization of the network;
Now, correct me if I am wrong, but does that say that as long as my server (“device attached to the provider’s network”) isn’t materially degrading the other users utilization (“isn’t too high bandwidth”), then they can’t technically make it against the T&C of service? While I sneak by right now because my home server is really only accessed by myself, this is an interesting provision.
