The word “neutrality” is something very new, and it was not an issue in the origins of Internet. It was the normal result of the architecture that’s been created on Internet. It’s agnostic to the way you use it. From this original point of view, you had the freedom to create.

This idea is something that’s worked very well, but it may face problems today. There are now questions to this value. Some of them are technical, but many are economical. If you want to make it simple, the question is: the Internet did not need much investment in the infrastructure of its networks. It was not very difficult to do it.

In today’s Internet, you have to invest a lot user-by-user. So it’s smart, fancy, but the revenues created are also weighted against what we are able to finance.
