What is Net Neutrality
When you get online through your favorite web-broswer, whether it be Chrome, FireFox, Safari, or I.E. you just might take a bit for granted. You might assume that you’ll be able to access whatever Web Adress you want to. We listen to podcasts, watch online video whether that be T.V or Netflix. Generally you have had good reason to think that all these features will be available to you at the same speed and availablity. This is due to Network Neutrality. This is the thing that keeps the internet open and free without structural preference. The internet service providers are not allowed to give preference among the various kinds of online content.
There is some discussion going on concerning whether or not the cable/internet companies would be able to charge websites and applications online for being able to send their information at faster speeds. Right now this is not so, but it might change. This will change the rules of the game altogether. Watch this video below to get an idea of what is going on. : )
