Abstract

We analyze UK and US experiences as they relate to two central net neutrality questions: (1) whether com- petition serves as a deterrent to the discriminatory treatment of Internet traffic, and (2) whether discrimi- nation creates barriers to application development and innovation. Relying on consumer switching behavior to providemore comprehensive competitive discipline was insufficient for a variety of reasons, including the presence of switching costs. The process of correcting errors in the technology used for application-specific management revealed that such management creates costs for application developers and innovators, regardless of whether their products are targeted for traffic management.
