Trinidad and Tobago, St. Lucia: Network neutrality

Caribbean bloggers are making noise about the Communications Opportunity, Promotion, and Efficiency Act of 2006, currently before the US Congress, which would permit “broadband discrimination” by ISPs. “It seems odd that the rest of the world has such little influence on this decision when so much of the world will be influenced,” says Taran Rampersad in Trinidad. He also explains “why network neutrality is important for the future of disaster communication”. In St. Lucia, Dorna! at the Guabancex Blog describes the COPE Act as “excessively vòwas thinking” (vòwas is Kwéyòl for greedy).
