Abstract
In recent years, whether to implement “Network Neutrality” has been a very controversial topic in the Internet industry. Because of the huge impact that network neutrality policies have on the development of both the Internet industry and the interests of its related participants, not only academics but people from the practice community are intensively discussing this hot issue. Based on the content of network neutrality, as well as the current debate on network neutrality, from the aspects of supporters and objectors of network neutrality respectively, this paper analyzes the status quo of the development of network neutrality policies in major developed countries such as the United States and the United Kingdom, and finds that the parties involved have not yet reached a final conclusion on this dispute due to distinct opinions from different stakeholders on network neutrality policies. It is expected that future network neutral discussions will continue to deepen.
