What is net neutrality?
Net neutrality is essentially fairness and equality on the internet and that all internet data is the same. This is important because it would effect your money, your rights, other guidelines, and the world overall because the US has a massive influence over the rest of the world.
Why is it important?
It’s important because losing net neutrality would cause the cost of internet access to go up and it would also allow telecom companies to make internet “fast lanes” and zero-rating practices. This could also cause changes in other parts of the world especially in Europe where rules are a lot stricter and they already have a couple of rules that borderline break net neutrality, it essentially means that if you ask for something about you to be removed from the internet it has to be.
What’s going to change when these rules are adopted?
Nothing, that’s the issue everything previously described is going to become legal could possibly become legal (even though companies still kind of still try to do it with loopholes in the law) on December 14th..
What else will happen with the rule changes?
As part of the rule changes broadband will be removed from title 2 which means that it won’t be considered a utility. This means that poor people won’t get subsidies from the government for internet access.
