Network Neutrality has different meanings in different countries. But the discussion about the subject is always seeking for the same solution. Because many countries have different regulation for Service providers and Content providers, it is hard to find only one meaning for Neutrality. In another hand, end users need to have the same understanding with respect to the functions and roles of each other in a global or local view. The discussion should not be conducted only bipolar way of access service providers and content. Another important point is to verify that all interpretations are truly independent. The continuity of the Internet service should also be discussed economically, but while analyzing the technical point of view. The definitions and terminologies should also follow more technical, but not be based only on current technologies, disregarding the evolution. Network Neutrality can not mean the service at no cost, because in the end this could mean the end of the Internet and its growth. In this work we will analyze South American Network Neutrality.
