  • 3. THIS IS THE INTERNET
  • 4. NET NEUTRALITY IS THE BELIEF THAT ALL DATA ON THE INTERNET SHOULD BE TREATED EQUALLY.Tim Wu, a Columbia Law professor, coined the term back in 2003.
  • 5. NET NEUTRALITY NO MATTER THE SOURCE, CONTENT OR LOCATION
  • 6. RIGHT NOW, NET NEUTRALITY RULES THE INTERNET
  • 7. BUT NET NEUTRALITY IS JUST A AN ABSTRACT CONCEPT (not a law) BELIEF
  • 8. SOME WANT TO CHANGE THE RULES AND END THE ERA OF OF NET NEUTRALITY
  • 9. ISPS COULD CHARGE SITE OWNERS FOR FASTER DOWNLOAD TIMESISP = Internet Service Provider The companies that bring the Internet into your home
  • 10. THEN THOSE SITE OWNERS WOULD CHARGE YOU MORE TO VIEW VIDEOS AND SUCH
  • 11. THAT’S WHAT YOU HEAR ABOUT MOST: SLOWER, MORE EXPENSIVE CONTENT
  • 12. BUT THERE’S MORE
  • 13. IT COULD ALSO MAKE LIFE MUCH, MUCH HARDER FOR SMALL BUSINESSES
  • 14. PREFERENTIAL TREATMENT THE END OF NET NEUTRALITY WOULD ALLOW ISPs TO CHARGE HIGHER FEES FOR SITES THEY DON’T LIKE
  • 15. CENSORSHIP THE END OF NET NEUTRALITY WOULD ALLOW ISPs TO BLOCK IDEAS THEY DON’T LIKE
  • 16. SERVICE ON THE OTHER HAND, HIGHER PROFITS COULD EQUAL BETTER SERVICE
  • 17. DIGITAL DIVIDE ON THE OTHER HAND, HIGHER PROFITS COULD MEAN BETTER ACCESS IN UNDERSERVED AREAS
  • 18. DIGITAL DIVIDE ON THE OTHER HAND, HIGHER PROFITS COULD MEAN BETTER ACCESS IN UNDERSERVED AREAS OR EXACTLY THE OPPOSITE
  • 19. MY POINT I HAVEN’T COVERED ALL THE ISSUES. OR COMPLETELY COVERED THE ONES I DISCUSS.
  • 20. MY POINT IS THAT THERE’S MORE TO THIS THAN VIDEO DOWNLOAD SPEED.
  • 21. MY POINT IS THAT THERE’S MORE TO THIS THAN VIDEO DOWNLOAD SPEED. I’VE TRIED TO PRESENT SOME ARGUMENTS FROM BOTH SIDES.
  • 22. I’D LOVE IT IF YOU WENT OUT AND SUPPORTED NET NEUTRALITY
  • 23. BUT AT LEAST THINK ABOUT IT. ALL OF THE ISSUES. THE GOOD AND BAD.
  • 24. AND THEN MADE YOUR OWN DECISION BY BALANCING THOSE ISSUES
