Net Neutrality

What is Net Neutrality?

Net Neutrality is the principle that Internet service providers (ISPs) should enable access to all content and applications regardless of the source, and without favoring or blocking particular products or websites.

Why is Net Neutrality Important?

Without Net Neutrality, business can be forced to pay higher premiums to guarantee that their data will reach their customers, you, at the same speed as before. This will mean higher paywalls to access content at the same speed as before or a slowed speed to content that opted out of paying the ISP. This can also work as a form of censorship on content that either disagrees or competes with the ISP.
