"Free response" final exam for net neutrality policy makers

Selena Frye, in the Network Administrator blog for Tech Republic, has a post “Seven questions for the new Internet rule makers,” link (website url) here.

It reads like a college essay exam, or maybe an AP “free response” problem set. Teachers and professors should love this piece.

The biggest overall question seems to be whether average end users can really tell what is going on in matters that can affect them. For example, Cisco is claiming we can make the environment rich enough for everybody so the issue goes away. But what about rural areas? Will greater dependency on wireless (because it is cheaper in the long run) mean bigger security problems for average users, especially in rural areas?
