The way regular consumers use the Internet is about to change. That is, of course, if the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has its way.
The FCC has proposed plans that will allow Internet service providers to charge companies a premium for access to their fastest available lanes, thus impacting the idea of net neutrality.
Net neutrality refers to the idea, or concept, that Internet service providers should treat all Internet traffic as equals in regards to the speed of its delivery. In laments terms, it’s the idea that the Internet, like water, gas and electricity, is a utility that should not be restricted.
