Analysis – New Net Neutrality Rules Could Drive Up Game Prices

In January 2014, a United State appeals court ruled that some elements of the Federal Communication Commission’s net neutrality rules were unenforceable. Net neutrality, the concept that traffic should flow equally regardless of origination or pathway is the cornerstone of the “open Internet” philosophy, was essentially dismantled.

The courts have ruled that corporations can tamper with traffic speeds and even block access, provided they disclose that to customers. In the wake of this, Comcast and Netflix struck a deal in February to prevent throttling. Earlier this week, Netflix announced an upcoming price hike, but didn’t specify rates. (Industry)
