Cato Institute and Wisconsin Public Radio discuss end of net neutrality

Julian Sanchez at Wisconsin Public Radio discusses the rollback of Network Neutrality on this 30-minute podcast, hosted on the Cato site.

Yes, the broadcast does begin with blunt questions as to whether telecom companies really would charge content providers to be connected, but then varies.

There is some disagreement as to whether the regulatory environment rolls back to 2015, or all the way back to before 2005.

There is also mention of a case where a Canadian telecom company cut off its union’s website.
The general impression is that very little would happen in practice that affects most consumers.
