Net Neutrality

What is Net Neutrality?

Net neutrality (also network neutrality or Internet neutrality) is the principle that Internet service providers (ISP's) and governments should treat all data on the Internet equally, not discriminating or charging differentially by user, content, site, platform, application, type of attached equipment, or mode of communication.

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.
