Wikipedia said:Network neutrality (also net neutrality, Internet neutrality) is a principle proposed for user access networks participating in the Internet that advocates no restrictions by Internet Service Providers and governments on content, sites, platforms, on the kinds of equipment that may be attached, and no restrictions on the modes of communication allowed.
Meaning? What sort of content, why would it be restricted, what sort of equipment and platforms?
As in, one internet subscription may not allow for 3D gaming or internet on the PS3 while another might?
The principle states that if a given user pays for a certain level of Internet access, and another user pays for the same level of access, then the two users should be able to connect to each other at the subscribed level of access.
huh? Im stumped, somebody explain.
