The U.S. Senate voted to overturn the FCC’s egregious Net Neutrality repeal today by passing their resolution of disapproval! Now the fight goes to the U.S. House of Representatives.
Net Neutrality is the principle that internet service providers (ISPs), should treat all web content equally, which means that your ISP shouldn’t throttle (slow down), block, or otherwise interfere with your internet activity. People often mistake Net Neutrality as a law, or even a rule.
Net Neutrality is an idea, concept, or principle, just like freedom isn’t a law, it’s an idea, concept, and principle. In the USA, we were all taught that freedom was the motivation for the Declaration of Independence, and the Bill of Rights. Likewise, Net Neutrality is the ideal and standard that inspired the 2015 Open Internet Order.
