I edited the text, I hope my changes are interesting to you all.
There are a lot of things to discuss regarding Core Internet Values, and I
have a paper on that (in Portuguese, no translation to English yet), but
among the problems, there is also data throttling (that I somehow included
in the document), and data caps. We could also go to discuss data prices,
which is a severe impairment for less developed countries.
Thank you all for keeping this a great community (I mostly watch your email
changes, in respect).
