Discussion of Net Neutrality has often involved policy discussions about regulating or rationing bandwidth as a scarce resource.
On Wednesday, November 17th, ISOC-NY will host a panel with people who are building tomorrow’s broadband infrastructure to create an abundance of bandwidth that could one day make these issues moot.
Date: Wednesday, November 17, 2010
Time: 7-9 pm
Place: Room 201 Warren Weaver Hall 251 Mercer St NYC (just southeast of Washington Square)
The event is free and open to the public. Photo ID must be presented to gain access to the building.
At the second of the Internet Society NY Chapter’s meetings with Hunter Newby, CEO of Allied Fiber, he presented an overview of the company’s plan to encircle the entire USA with a dark fiber ring with carrier neutral access at any point. Allied Fiber’s simple yet forward-thinking “real estate” approach to infrastructure provides de facto the structural separation which has, in other countries, been a boon to ISP competition, giving users access to cheap bandwidth and making network neutrality a moot point. Runs just about an hour. The subsequent Q&A may be made available at a later date.
