There’s been a fairly long protracted debate about net neutrality happening in the US.

My basic understanding is that Carriers in the US want to be able to police what goes over their portion of the internet. That is stop VoIP or P2P traffic because it damages their core revenue streams etc etc.

I admit to not getting the debates relevance (outside of a moral discussion) My question for you readers is two fold.

1) should anyone who lives outside the US even care? What is the impact here

2) does it even matter? The point being that the internet is so interconnected now that content etc can be taken from anywhere and if we can’t get it via the US then we’ll get it from another source… and such activity will only be to the detriment of the US economy ?

Can you out there shed more light on this?
