Net Neutrality means an internet that enables and protects free speech. It means that ISPs should provide us with open networks and shouldn’t block or discriminate against any applications or content that ride over those networks. Net neutrality preserves our right to communicate freely online. The internet without Net Neutrality isn’t really the internet.
Without the Net Neutrality rules, the major internet and phone providers companies will be able to decide which applications, contents and even websites will succeed and slow down possible competitors worldwide.
Consequences will be devastating for the media community, activist won´t be able to protest, and it means no privacy. The Federal Communications Commission voted in December 2017 to implement Chairman Ajit Pai’s plan to end net neutrality. Network neutrality is one of the foremost free speech issues of our time. In this day and age, it is pretty much impossible to get through life without using the internet, which makes it essential that our free speech rights are, protected both on and offline.
