Great Net Neutrality Article!

Disguised as a rant against bad WiFi at shows:

Show floor wifi is the perfect example of what our broadband environment would look like if we had forced Net Neutrality without network management – it would be a giant piece of crap and everyone would be mad about it.

Network management is a key ingredient in the successful operation of a broadband network.   Taking away the ability to manage network traffic would lead to catastrophic failures on all broadband networks.   Even the most advanced networks would eventually succumb.

Broadband networks without network management would put us back to the days of dialup – except we might be wanting our dialup back just to have something that would be reliable.
