Everything you need to know about net neutrality

Net Neutrality


Net Neutrality essentially means all data in Internet has be treated equally no matter who created it. It means that Internet service providers should provide us with open networks — and should not block or discriminate against any applications or content that ride over those networks.


Your ISP shouldn’t be concerned with the content you view or post online. When we send or receive data over the Internet, we expect those companies to transfer that data from one end of the network to the other,We don’t expect them to analyze or manipulate it.


Without net neutrality ISP can program the computers that route that information to interfere with the data flow by slowing down or blocking traffic and communicators that they don’t like (and speeding up traffic they do like or that pays them extra for the privilege).Companies might want to interfere with speech that makes them look bad, block applications that compete with their own, or increase their profit by forcing developers to pay more to avoid having their data blocked or slowed down.


Net neutrality doesn’t increase your 1mbps bandwidth to any more but it makes sure you get every content from internet at same speed. ISP’s should not discriminate if its netflix or youtube or any other content providers. ISP should not be concerned about what you get from internet let alone manipulate it.


Nearly 4 million people — a record-breaking figure — submitted comments for Net Neutrality. In November 2014, President Obama joined the call and the full Commission approved his proposal on Feb. 26 — marking the biggest victory for the public interest in the Federal Communications Commission’s(FCC) history.
