Net Neutrality: Understanding the Great Debate
Net neutrality has become a policy dispute about determining the future of the Internet so important that President Obama has formally weighed in. The question remains: Is access to the Internet more like access to electricity, or more like cable television service?
Simply put, you use electricity each month, and give your electric company money each month based on your usage. The electric company does not become involved with how or when you choose to use your electricity. Cable television providers, on the other hand, offer a menu of packages, featuring different channels, at different price ranges. As the consumer, you must pick exactly what options you want to pay for.
Some, now including President Obama, say the Internet is like electricity, or a public utility helping people to function in modern society. ISP’s should not be allowed to restrict the best access, but rather everyone should be allowed reliable access to content. Others believe that major content providers, like Netflix, should be able to negotiate deals and pay more to provide a better Internet experience.
The debate isn’t over yet though. To learn more, visit here.
