URGENT: Net Neutrality

URGENT: Net Neutrality

This post is less for our younger fans and more for the adults in the room.

The coming FCC decision on Net Neutrality will affect you if you play games, create content, tweet, snap, gram, binge watch tv shows, read the news, and so on…

Net Neutrality is a boring term, but an important one. The openness of the internet for the use of creating content and sharing ideas is important—and it is at risk. Up for grabs right now is your ability to have equal access to an internet connection that will allow you to browse any website without extra charge.

The details are a bit nerdy and regard how internet providers are classified and thus monitored by the FFC. If the proposed FCC plan goes through your access to various websites, apps, and services could end up throttled, blocked, or costing more money based on your ISP.

There is a lot to read on the subject but even The Internet Association, a group that represents more than 40 top internet companies, including Google, Facebook, and Netflix, said there was no reason to change the current rules. “The current FCC net neutrality rules are working and these consumer protections should not be changed,” said the group’s CEO, Michael Beckerman. “Consumers pay for access to the entire internet free from blocking, throttling, or paid prioritization.” (The Verge)
