I recently learned about something called Net Neutrality in my Mass Media class. It is basically the term for giving everyone who has access to the internet an equal experience whether it is by the government or the Internet provider. This year, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is giving Net Neutrality a second look in hopes of allowing Internet providers to offer their customers faster data streaming. What does this mean for internet users? Well, not everybody will get equal access to the same things anymore. Since big telecommunication companies are partnering up or buying each other out, unless you can afford this change, then you will be pretty much be left out. Allowing people access to faster and better internet is one thing, but blocking out data or purposefully making the internet slower for others seems completely unfair to me.
What are your thoughts?
Here is a video that is entertaining and helps explain this new movement.
