Chile First Country to Make Net Neutrality a Reality

July 14, 2010 -

You'd expect America to be the standard banner for Net Neutrality, but we have to look to South America to find the very first country to get the job done. That country is Chile, according to a SlashDot report. Chile representatives voted for new net neutrality rules by a margin of 100 - 0. According to Slashdot, the rules read like this (a rough translation):

"No [ISP] can block, interfere with, discriminate, hinder, nor restrict the right of any Internet user of using, send, receive or offer any content, application, or legitimate service through the Internet, as well as any activity or legitimate use conducted through the Internet."

The law also has articles that force ISPs to do other things like require parental control tools, clarify contracts, "guarantee" user privacy and safety, and not to restrict any liberty whatsoever.

"You'd expect America to be the standard banner for Net Neutrality"

Only if you'd been in a coma for the past 20 years.

Re: Chile First Country to Make Net Neutrality a Reality

It's actually quite embarassing for the USA in some ways, a country that was, in the early 70's recovering from a coup and guilty of a wealth of Human Rights abuses now has less trouble giving equal rights to it's citizens than the US does...

Re: Chile First Country to Make Net Neutrality a Reality

Wow... I was hoping us Canadians would be the first to flip off the corporate lobbies but I guess Bell, Rogers, and Telus have their claws in too deep. Damn shame. Congrats to Chile though. I am even more impressed that the bill went uncontested.

Re: Chile First Country to Make Net Neutrality a Reality

Eh Rogers, Bell and Telus use the CRTC to their advantage. I am hoping a reform happens to the CRTC...the big three telecoms have been gouging us for years x.x

Still though glad Chile gets it! Surprised like you that it wasn't contested.

Re: Chile First Country to Make Net Neutrality a Reality

Hmm, i was under the impression that the CRTC had rules in place to prevent net neutrality from ever being a problem up here.

Re: Chile First Country to Make Net Neutrality a Reality

America in the standards bearer. It's just a lower standard as mandated by corporate lobbyists.

I have a dream, break the chains of copy right oppression! http://zippydsmlee.wordpress.com/2010/05/21/cigital-disobedience/


Copyright infringement is nothing more than civil disobedience to a bad set of laws. Let's renegotiate them.

WonderkarpSo I found out I'm Invincible Today. I drove through a Tornado and didnt even know it. was windy and torrential downpour but I drove through like a boss. 05/26/2015 - 7:35pm
ZenEnded up giving the code to Andrew so he gets to be the other guinea pig lol.05/26/2015 - 6:53pm
ZenSo...who wants to help with an experiment and get a free game for 3DS and possibly Wii U lol? Gave a friend the Wii u OlliOlli code from the Humble Bundle and it gave him the 3DS one too. Still have a 3DS code which may give a Wii U version too.05/26/2015 - 4:35pm
Zenjust wish they had been as open about development as they were with X1 and PS4. All we got were interviews saying everything was great and then this lol.05/26/2015 - 4:14pm
ZenYeah, he brought it up again as time went on and stated it was not to be taken seriously. And I am in NO way defending people who are acting like...well....the not so nice way to say "butts". And I don't personally think they haven't worked on the game, I05/26/2015 - 4:12pm
Andrew EisenSo I can see why Bell would be ultra defensive and snippety. But, again, still not an advisable thing to say.05/26/2015 - 3:57pm
Andrew Eisennot to mention horrifically insulting.05/26/2015 - 3:56pm
Andrew EisenAgreed, even out of frustration, not an advisable thing to post. As for the rest, sounds like it thought its tweeks and optimizations would work. The idea that it was stringing everyone along and not actually working on it is nearly nonsensical...05/26/2015 - 3:55pm
Zenand looking great...yet refused to even show a single screen shot while touting their open development on X1 and PS4. People are now asking if they even worked on the game or if it was dropped in the beginning & they were keeping up appearances instead.05/26/2015 - 3:53pm
ZenI understand that, but making a blanket statement to cover an entire market like that will do nothing more than push consumers away or alienate a group. Other issues stem from the interviews and public announcements they made stating the game is running05/26/2015 - 3:52pm
Andrew EisenNot an advisable thing to post, I'll grant you.05/26/2015 - 3:47pm
Andrew EisenReading the thread, it looks like he's just getting frustrated with the obnoxious and unreasonable members of the board (most of whom signed up that day).05/26/2015 - 3:47pm
ZenNintendo users in general by stating "Yup, and if you need to pass this on, we really dislike Nintendo users." on their forum. Sincere or not, it's annoyed some fans & put doubt on the company even trying.05/26/2015 - 3:35pm
ZenThey pushed that even just a few months ago it was running great, with effects, but they just needed a few tweeks before release. I posted about this last night, but it has since cycled thru. Ian Bell also had some fairly disparaging things to say about05/26/2015 - 3:34pm
Matthew Wilson@AE @iamc they admired they cant do wiiu, and they have a valid reason for it. the wiiu is too weak.05/26/2015 - 3:24pm
Andrew EisenLied about what?05/26/2015 - 3:11pm
IanCThey outright lied, they kept pushing that it was coming out on Wii U right to they got a publisher, then went quiet. Funny that...05/26/2015 - 3:09pm
Matthew Wilsonhttp://www.vg247.com/2015/05/26/project-cars-struggling-to-hit-720p30fps-on-wii-u/ I love that he is honest. they admited that they are at their wits end with the wiius hardware.05/26/2015 - 1:48pm
E. Zachary KnightHumbleSupport has said the codes don't expire. So That is pretty tempting.05/26/2015 - 1:38pm
