Net Neutrality stimulates ISP competition, improves QoS


The Regional Manager, Phase3 Telecommunications Nigeria Limited, Mr. Tayo Mobolade, has stated that Net Neutrality as a framework stimulates Internet Service Provider (ISP) competition and improves Quality of Service (QoS), ITRealms reports.

Mobolade who was addressing an attentive audience on the first day of the 2015 Nigerian DigitalSENSE Africa Media Forum on Internet Governance for Development (IG4D) with the theme: “Net Neutrality and Nigerian Internet Users” said that the technical and economic analysis of the pros and cons of Net Neutrality does make a strong case for the undeserved in Nigeria and indeed the West African sub-region.

He also said “a large fraction of the Nigerian populace that are underprivileged will mostly experience slow network penetration, poor service delivery, unfair/ non-competitive pricing and little broadband investment in their communities,” ITRealms gathered.  

Taking a look at the advantage and disadvantage of Net Neutrality, he challenged all to imagine “a Nigeria where access to vital information on the internet is non- restrictive, where we are not shut out of global business play because we are not trusted or accessible, where the possibilities for innovation and rapid economic development is endless because we enjoy net neutrality that allows us to conduct our businesses online without discrimination.”  

More so, control of Net Neutrality will affect variety of users of the internet at several levels including: emerging businesses, home users, businesses that rely on services over the 
Internet (cloud), educational users (teachers/students) in a negative way, ITRealms reports.

He admonished all to rise to the occasion by actively advocating and giving voice to “Net Neutrality” saying as lead vanguard for protection of internet freedom and equity among users “continuity of purpose” is key!

This, he said, is the best way to ensure healthy competition in Quality of Service (QoS) and the improvement of investment in broadband for service penetration, ITRealms gathered.
