Net Neutrality and Bill Smith's Parents

TechDirt relooks at the whole network neutrality issue and wraps with a comment about a recent Bill Smith quote.

From the post:

"BellSouth's CTO says his parents are getting unfairly charged because they only surf the web and send email, but have to pay the same rate as everybody else. It would seem the obvious answer there would be to charge folks like his parents less for a lower-speed connection, like many companies do, but he'd rather keep them at the baseline and charge everybody else more. I guess it's not surprising a telco exec's got no problem ripping off his own parents."

All net neutral golfers should be making a bee line for the ATL this wknd! Or more specifically, to Duluth. Shame shame shame on BellSouth.
