There’s a consensus emerging among my friends Brough Turner, Bill St. Arnaud and Martin Geddes, that Network Neutrality by regulation is not practical. Each has their own reasons, but the conclusions converge inescapably with mine — given current industry structure, the incentives are all wrong.

Any such rule I could think up would put today’s carriers in an untenable, self-competitive situation.
