The Fight for Net Neutrality

The Fight for Net Neutrality

Posted under: AT&T, Internet, Time Warner, Verizon and Xfinity

Net neutrality is the idea that ISPs (Internet Service Providers) like Comcast, AT&T, Time Warner Cable, and Verizon should not be allowed to choose what we are able to see and do on the Internet. In 2015 the fight to protect Internet freedoms was won in the form of rules being established by the FCC (Federal Communication Commission). Theese rules prevent Internet providers from blocking, throttling, and prioritizing content to users that don't pay additional fees. There is going to be a vote on this issue on Decemeber the 14th of 2017, which is quickly approaching. It is important to take action in the coming week, if you want to be able to make a difference on this issue.

How does Net Neutrality effect consumers?

If these Net Neutrality rules are repealed by the campaign pushed by Ajit Pai and the big cable companies against Net Neutrality you will have no rights against Internet monopolies. There could be additional fees added to your bills in order to access certain content. Things like search engines, social media, streaming sites, and video games could all become premium features.
