On Network Neutrality
Network Neutrality is an approach to providing network access without unfair discrimination between applications nor between content nor between the specific source of the traffic. If there are two applications or services or providers that require the same network resources and one is offered better quality of service (delays, speed, etc.) or is cheaper to access, then there is a discrimination.
