In today's podcast we're talking to Doug Suriano, Chief Technology Officer at mobile broadband solutions company Tekelec, about net neutrality.
Net neutrality is the principle that consumers are not restricted in the ways they're able to use their internet connection. The topic is often in the headlines, either because some governments may want to prevent their citizens from viewing certain types of information - or because of commercial restrictions.
Perhaps an internet service provider wants to limit peer-to-peer sharing. Maybe a mobile network doesn't want its customers using Voice-over-IP services. Should this be allowed... and can you still honestly call it 'internet access' when part of the internet isn't available?
Doug explains some of the challenges facing mobile network operators in this interview.
