Doc's Take on Net Neutrality

Doc Searls concludes his critique of an anti-Net neutrality column by my former boss Bob Pepper with the following:

Neutrality may be an important Net virtue, but arguing for it distracts from three things that deserve more attention: 1) what the carriers are doing wrong; 2) what the carriers could be doing right (for their sake and everybody else’s); and 3) the need to open the market to more and better offerings at the local level.

This is completely in line with my argument that what really matters is not neutrality, in the sense of non-discrimination, but the interconnection practices of network operators.
