Paid Prioritization Slated for House Committee Hearing

Paid Prioritization

Net neutrality is not a road where fast and slow lanes should be created.

Paid prioritization is a major issue that needs to be addressed. That is why later this month, the House Energy and Commerce Committee will conduct a meeting to tackle the subject.

According to the committee spokeswoman, the hearing will be held on April 17.  The panel will investigate ISPs practices of paid prioritization that results in internet fast lanes.  She stated in an email that a majority approves the no blocking and throttling. Nevertheless, it is required to clearly understand the policy on the consequences of paid prioritization.

Paid prioritization is the enhancement of data allocation rates for dominant providers in return for payment.  Internet fast lanes are likely to be carried out in large media sites and service providers. These include Facebook, Google, and Netflix. This procedure is other known as vertical prioritization.

Edge providers Google and Netflix greatly scrutinize paid prioritization. They argue that internet fast lanes will make ISPs concierges and enables them to dominate independent market ventures.

Fast lanes mean slower lanes for other websites especially if the user cannot afford to pay extra for a faster connection. But with the dnet, speed is never an issue. It stays fast and reliable even after years of usage. The connection does not delay over the course of long usage since defragmentation is not necessary.

The dnet system provides users with limitless access to the decentralized network. Added to that is the ability to connect with other traditional websites without the restriction. In short, there are no fast or slow lanes.

Moreover, dnet is developed to protect and secure personal information of the users. It means that it doesn’t dispatch information to anyone without consent. The platform does not gather personal data and disseminate it just like that.

Meanwhile,  it is still not certain who will bear witness to the paid prioritization council. However, a majority of Democrats support the legislative endeavor. This is to abolish the FCC decision and will not be influenced by an upcoming settlement measure.
