NETWORK NEUTRALITY POLICY DECISION PROCESS: THE CASE OF NETFLIX IN TURKEY


The mainstream literature provided the main arguments of the opponents and proponents of the Net Neutrality (NN) debate materialized between internet service providers (i.e., network operators) and content and/or application providers. However, this paper provides a different classification of the literature to enable us to see the NN topic from different dimensions, which are technical, economic, digital divide/human rights, regulatory. Based on these dimensions, the paper adopted the model of the NN decision process and analyzed the case of Netflix in Turkey. It revealed that the NN regulation is needed only for transparency and competition aspects, under the current circumstances by also considering the penetration potential of the video streaming market.
