Berners-Lee differentiates network "services" from "infrastructure" in advocating pro-neutrality regulation by FCC
Tim Berners-Lee has drawn a distinction between “Internet infrastructure” and “Internet services” in arguing for network neutrality, in a summary in TechDirt, here. Berners-Lee says that the biggest companies could destroy competition and the free market if allowed to.
