Net Neutrality Update


Net Neutrality Update The internet has been something of a wild west frontier for years but the very openness that defined the internet could be changing. Leading the change is Google and Verizon wireless; two huge internet players. They are debating a deal that advocates say will make the internet a fairer marketplace for those who provide access to users. Opponents of the deal say that, without more federal regulation to control internet providers, users will pay higher fees and have less access to the internet than ever before. We update the issue of net neutrality and how to keep the internet open for all.
