Net Neutrality: What is it?

Net Neutrality

Net Neutrality is the Internet’s guiding principle: It preserves our right to communicate freely online. Right now, there have been many arguments about repealing Neutrality. But this really isn’t news, as these arguments to destroy it have been around for over a decade.

Internet Service Providers (ISPs) insist on treating everything on the Internet the same, which is why this “Net Neutrality” came into place. This policy is the government mandating how ISPs will assemble people upon their networks. But why is this a bigger issue? Consumers are worried that they could end up paying more money for services because ISPs could go from being neutral to being gatekeepers on the Internet.

Some people are all for the repeal of this simply because they don’t want the government to have total control over what should be the open Internet. Others believe Net Neutrality is a violation of our Constitutional rights (free speech). However, some may disagree and believe that this keeps everyone and everything neutral on the Internet. Legislators will vote on December 14, 2017, to either repeal Net Neutrality or keep it the same.
