Imagine getting online one day, only to find out that you can’t access your favorite website. Perhaps it’s Facebook, MySpace, or any number of other social networking websites, but none of them seem to work. You quickly call your Internet provider, but after talking to them find out that in order to gain access to that site, you’ll need to pay more money. Unfortunately, this is what Internet providers want: An Internet that they can control, where people would purchase packages of access similar to the way subscription television is purchased. The issue is net neutrality, or keeping the Internet neutral, and there is a huge fight between consumers, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), and providers of Internet access (e.g. Verizon, Comcast, etc.).
