Net Neutrality – It was created to prevent internet service providers like Verizon, AT&T, Comcast, Charter, Vodafone from favoring some sites and apps against the competitor by chopping block. On coming Thursday, December 14, at 10:30 a.m ET, the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) net neutrality vote is scheduled and has the potential to radically alter the internet as we know it.
What is net neutrality: It is the principle that internet providers treat all web traffic as same, and it’s pretty much how the internet has worked since its creation. But regulators, consumer advocates and internet companies were concerned about what broadband companies could do with their power as the pathway to the internet — blocking or slowing down apps that rival their own services.
If the net neutrality opens, then the companies like Charter, Comcast, and Verizon can’t able to slow access to certain content or block consumers from seeing it. The proposed FCC rule change would get rid of the net neutrality requirement. It would give Internet providers more control over their networks.
