Senator Ted Stevens, Alaska - voorzitter van de Senaatscommissie voor Handel. Dit is jouw overheid praat over internet. Ugh. (Update 7/13: Geweldige plek op de Daily Show)
Om te citeren:
There’s one company now you can sign up and you can get a movie delivered to your house daily by delivery service. Okay. And currently it comes to your house, it gets put in the mail box when you get home and you change your order but you pay for that, right.But this service is now going to go through the internet* and what you do is you just go to a place on the internet and you order your movie and guess what you can order ten of them delivered to you and the delivery charge is free.
Tien van hen streamen over dat internet en wat gebeurt er met je eigen persoonlijke internet?
I just the other day got, an internet was sent by my staff at 10 o’clock in the morning on Friday and I just got it yesterday. Why?Because it got tangled up with all these things going on the internet commercially.So you want to talk about the consumer? Let’s talk about you and me. We use this internet to communicate and we aren’t using it for commercial purposes. We aren’t earning anything by going on that internet. Now I’m not saying you have to or you want to discriminate against those people [¿]The regulatory approach is wrong. Your approach is regulatory in the sense that it says “No one can charge anyone for massively invading this world of the internet”. No, I’m not finished. I want people to understand my position, I’m not going to take a lot of time. [¿]
They want to deliver vast amounts of information over the internet. And again, the internet is not something you just dump something on. It’s not a truck.
It’s a series of tubes.
And if you don’t understand those tubes can be filled and if they are filled, when you put your message in, it gets in line and its going to be delayed by anyone that puts into that tube enormous amounts of material, enormous amounts of material.
Nu hebben we een apart internet van het ministerie van Defensie, wist je dat?
Weet je waarom?
Because they have to have theirs delivered immediately. They can’t afford getting delayed by other people.
Nu denk ik dat deze mensen ruzie maken of ze al die dingen op internet zouden moeten kunnen dumpen, zouden moeten overwegen of ze zelf een systeem zouden moeten ontwikkelen.
Maybe there is a place for a commercial net but it’s not using what consumers use every day.
It’s not using the messaging service that is essential to small businesses, to our operation of families.
Het hele concept is dat we hier niet op in moeten gaan totdat iemand laat zien dat er iets is gedaan dat echt een schending van netneutraliteit is, dat jou en mij treft.
