Net neutrality may end in the UK: Universities will suffer
Ed Vaizey, the communications minister for UK government favours a 'two tier' system which would essentially be the death of net neutrality in Great Britain. Is net neutrality a good thing or a bad thing?
Though it is only in consideration in the United States as in the United Kingdom, it could set a dangerous precident for equality among all Internet users, from small start-up's and major public sector organisations, to the end user at home.
However, this could be forced upon organisations in form of government policy and law without an opt-in system. On the whole, the system may work and may not, and there's no particular way to work out if it will until it either does or doesn't.
Universities often have huge pipelines, sometimes multiple high-speed broadband and fibre lines into their respective locations to allow the tens of thousands of students and staff to use the web from their halls of residence, the library or on the computer labs around the capus.
