Study: Net neutrality law would spur infrastructure improvements

From Eric Bangeman at Ars:

"One of the main arguments opponents of network neutrality make is that laws requiring ISPs to treat all traffic equally would discourage infrastructure investment on the part of those who own the pipes. A new study conducted by researchers at the University of Florida undercuts those claims."<

So... finally, someone has shown that competition in the telecom market can stimulate innovation and investment. Hardly a novel idea... but a really good point to make as the net neutrality debate rages and we try to keep the net open to users and innovators.
