LTE May Heat up Mobile Net Neutrality Debate

Nice article by Stephen Lawson (IDG News Service) on the recent trends in mobile traffic management.

"Fine-grained network controls that are coming with next-generation mobile technology could make some demanding mobile applications such as video perform better but may also raise net neutrality concerns ... As more wireless subscribers try to use ever more bandwidth-intensive applications, carriers want mechanisms to ensure that the most important or sensitive uses of the network don't get trampled. EPC gives them tools to control, to some degree, the speed or QOS (quality of service) of individual applications."
