Net Neutrality! That was a Close One!

Hark, The Herald Angels Sing on High! That was definitely a close one. 3-2 vote to be exact. So, if you have been under the proverbial rock on the topic of Net Neutrality, well let me explain. Net Neutrality is basically the push or act of keeping the internet accessible to everyone who uses it. Most importantly, it is a principle to keep Internet Service Providers from discriminating against certain websites. To be honest, I am not the best at explaining in full detail, but I know who does! Hank from the vlogbrothers channel on Youtube explains the debate around Net Neutrality in a very interesting way! Click on here to view.

This is exciting! The FCC will now treat ISPs as “common carriers” such as the cellphone companies. The internet is safe…for now. I don’t want to speculate, but I have the feeling that some big company will try to overturn this newly implemented measure. Anywho, celebrate! We won the battle of Net Neutrality!
