Net Neutrality PPT

  1. 1. Dylan Lee Curtis Sung
  2. 2. What is Net Neutrality?  The concept of an “Open” Internet  Equal representation for all content providers (websites)  Transferring information without bias • It has basically been this way since the inception of the internet • Sounds good, right?
  3. 3. So…Why is this a problem?  People are using more internet now than ever before  Netflix accounts for ~30% of internet capacity at peak hours  ISPs (Time Warner, Comcast) want to charge content providers (Netflix, Youtube) for using so much of the internet  ISPs have to work harder now more than ever to sustain their network infrastructure.  Which side are you on?
  4. 4. To understand the internet, imagine a highway
  5. 5.  Companies started making money using the internet, but the internet providers weren’t getting a piece of the pie
  6. 6.  The principle of net neutrality has already been broken on several occasions.  Verizon sued the FCC and won back in 2013
  7. 7. ISPs Reasons against Net Neutrality  Internet service providers are advocates for free enterprise (NO REGULATION)  the government should not micro-manage internet providers’ business.  Some data is more important than other data and should be prioritized.  FedEx & Amazon example
  8. 8. Reasons For Net Neutrality  Advocates claim "we risk loss of the free flow and exchange of ideas central to our democracy"  Internet providers shouldn't be the ones to distinguish between acceptable and unacceptable content; their role is simply to transfer information without bias.
  9. 9. If Net Neutrality loses…  Whatsapp is used for messaging, what if AT&T made sure whatsapp didn’t have internet access through their system?  Comcast owns NBC, they could give priority to NBC’s stream over Netflix. How many people would be willing to pay an extra $10 for Netflix?
  10. 10. FCC Ruling  In February 16, 2015 the FCC voted 3-2 on party lines to approve strong rules to protect net neutrality, a landmark decision that was widely supported by the American public.  TomWheeler
  11. 11. Porter’s Five Forces For ISPs
  12. 12. Questions, Comments, Concerns?
