Understanding Net Neutrality

Net Neutrality?

Internet service providers should treat all content flowing equally. They shouldn't be able to slide some data into “fast lanes” while blocking or otherwise discriminating against other material. In other words, these companies shouldn't be able to block you from accessing a service. in order to encourage you to keep your cable package or buy a different video-streaming service.

The FCC spent years, with Bush and Obama administrations, trying to enforce net neutrality protections. After a series of legal defeats at the hands of broadband providers, the FCC passed a sweeping net neutrality order in 2015. Then December 2017, the Republicans voted to get rid of that order. Now broadband providers can block or throttle content as they see fit unless Congress or the courts block the agency's decision.

People that support Net Neutrality have argued that keeping the internet an open playing field is crucial for innovation. Broadband providers can pick whomever they wish to go to the head of the line. So, for example, internet providers could have blocked or severely limited video streaming in the mid-2000s No Netflix or YouTube today as we know it today. Net neutrality is essential for freedom of expression. If a few large companies get their claws into the internet we will be spending our nights much differently then we are now.

Most large broadband providers promised not to block or throttle content ahead of the ruling, and the FCC argues that traditional antitrust laws will stop providers from hobbling their competitors. But net neutrality advocates worry that we'll soon see fast lanes appearing on the internet. A broadband provider might, for example, allow some companies to pay for priority treatment on broadband networks. The fear is that, over time, companies and organizations who can't afford priority access will just fall to the wayside.
