The present article outlines the main pros and cons in the net neutrality debate and provides a synthetic analysis of net neutrality key problems and policy issues. Based on a relevant literature review, it gives an account of the potential economic impact of net neutrality regulations. The intended contribution of the present research is to provide additional arguments against price control on the ISPs market, emphasizing at the same time the role of increased transparency and increased competition between broadband operators in securing an open internet.
