The end of network neutrality has me thinking. If Internet content is like donuts and telecommunications networks are roads, then, the FCC’s new ruling has given the private road owners the ability to add tolls to their lanes -with a twist. The relevant tolls we’re talking about are for the side streets where people live. That’s the scarce resource, not the main freeways where excess capacity exists. If you are a donut delivery service you can either buy a toll pass to ensure your donuts get there while they’re still hot or you can take your chances on the free lanes. Your donuts will get there, perhaps a little cold, but they’ll still get there. Of course, now I’m thinking about real donuts, so I’m going to hit send and grab myself a sweet treat. They may not be hot, but they got here.
