My friends at Public Knowledge recently blogged about attachments or access to the network by devices. This is the third principle of net neutrality, access. See my earlier post above.

I’m glad to see that the three principles are being understood by a wider base. I did not make up the three principles; they are the principles adopted by the EU as early as 1987. But I have been touting net neutrality with my little elevator speech, and I hope it has, in some small way, helped clarify what is net neutrality, and what it’s not.

If federal legislation, again threatened by Rep. Ed Markey, addresses these three principles, and includes an enforcement tool outside the FCC, then we will be in good shape. I haven’t seen Markey’s bill, which is supposed to drop next week.
