Not stuck in neutral

Students address need for net neutrality in essays

Posted: Saturday, December 9, 2017 12:00 am

One of the most hotly debated issues in the public forum in recent weeks has been the upcoming vote on net neutrality.

The Federal Communications Commission is looking to possibly end its current approach to internet content, no longer regulating the web like a public utility, in which all companies must treat all traffic neutrally, but instead allowing internet provider corporations to control bandwidth at will, throttling speeds and possibly restricting customers from content on competitor’s websites.
