Netflix Inc. for example isn’t allowed to pay your broadband provider for a faster lane into customers’ homes compared with the tiny rival that can’t afford tolls to ensure its videos are crystal clear Last week however the FCC gave preliminary approval to scrap that approach and instead apply “light touch” regulation of internet providers in the words of FCC Chairman Ajit Pai He says companies that sell broadband don’t engage in preferential treatment of internet data and regulations shouldn’t be imposed on them because of hypothetical risks of abuse Netflix is better at the complications of streaming video than nearly all competitors the company effectively has preferential access to your home internet regardless of what the broadband providers do (Image for representation) Expect months or years of fighting over this in Washington and on the TV airwaves where comedian John Oliver has made net neutrality his personal (and very funny) cause But no matter what happens at the FCC the ideals behind net neutrality are essentially dead already Whatever the law says the notion that all digital data are created equal is pure fiction The reality is big technology companies such as Netflix and Google’s YouTube already have a big advantage in reaching homes because they have the money and technical expertise to make sure their videos stream without hiccups And the fact is internet providers have plenty of legal tactics to steer customers to their preferred programming The sharks — both broadband providers and tech titans — always win over the minnows Let me tackle these in more detail Netflix employs something like 4700 people and racked up $852 million last year on technology expenses in part to ensure every video pixel arrives on

to unravel Netflix makes these financial arrangements because plugging directly into broadband networks is an effective tactic to speed web videos’ path into people’s homes It’s the same reason many Wall Street firms have computer servers in the same buildings as those of stock exchanges to make sure their trades are conducted without even milliseconds of lag Your brother-in-law’s mobile video startup probably can’t afford peering fees so he is at an internet speed disadvantage Net-neutrality backers also are worried that telecom companies can give their own video-calling options or online TV packages speedier paths into people’s homes and slow down rivals such as Skype or Hulu But those telecom companies don’t need to clog broadband speeds to give their own programming or internet services a leg up They can press their financial advantages instead Paid Peering Just look at AT&T It gives people who have its high-end mobile phone service discounted subscriptions to AT&T’s DirecTV Now online TV service And it doesn’t count the streaming video against the data caps for AT&T smartphone customers Regulators do not bar telecom companies from giving their own internet services such an advantage Nor did the FCC stop the telecom providers from accepting fees to give access to certain websites or apps without customers worrying about their data costs Also Read:Internet privacy furor previews coming war over Net Neutrality AT&T doesn’t need to slow down competing web video services to use its internet connections to its own advantage or to the advantage of its paying
