Subject: My take on the internet of tomorrow

Hi,

First of all, thanks for allowing the public to take part in the discussion of what the internet of tomorrow should be.

Here's my take on it:

ICANN should remain, but should be given to an international body that can legislate the whole internet (I believe that the UN is the only body currently capable of doing so). I also believe that there should be an international treaty making laws in each major backbone country (and hopefully all or at least most other countries too) that states that no provider may especially slow down any internet traffic for any reason, be it political, corporate, or otherwise. There should be some (but not many) laws in place, allowing the freedom of the internet to continue.

I hope you seriously consider how much the future depends on the internet, and the upcoming decision.

The best of luck,

Alex Lowe
