net neutrality ppt

  1. 1. What is Net Neutrality Net neutrality simply means that all like Internet content must be treated alike and move at the same speed over the network. The owners of the Internet’s wires cannot discriminate. This is the simple but brilliant “end-to-end” design of the Internet that has made it such a powerful force for economic and social good
  2. 2.  Network Neutrality is the principle that internet users should be able to access web content, download or upload files, and communicate in methods of their choice without restrictions or limitations imposed by their ISP.
  3. 3. Net Neutrality is serious business
  4. 4. A system connecting networks around the world using TCP/IP, which stands for Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol, a set of standards for transmitting and receiving digital data. The Internet consists primarily of the collection of billions of interconnected computers (Economides 2008
  5. 5. ISP
  6. 6. WHY NET NEUTRALITY??
  7. 7. 1. Economic Recovery and Prosperity 2. Free Speech 3. Civic Participation 4. Marketplace of Ideas 5. Social Justice 6. Rise of Telecom companies 7. Political Opportunity Why Net neutrality is important
  8. 8. Why is it important?  The free and open Internet allows us to:  Communicate with others  Go to school  Do our jobs  Connect with people all over the world  Internet Growth  Ensure free and full exchange of information
  9. 9. As of now, publishing is essentially free. The only thing that you need is a monthly internet service. If the old economics come back to the forefront, preferential treatment will come from customers who pay. Only larger news organizations would be able to afford the cost of ensuring website in people’s homes (Preston 2009).
  10. 10. Net Neutrality is the building block of the abundance-based economy on the Internet. Significantly effecting the dollars that we would have back in our pockets, online publishers would, under “Net Neutrality” be able to raise its cost of publishing back to its former level. When Net Neutrality ends, the monopoly begins again. Sites like West Seattle Blog are profitable because of this reason Economics of net neutrality
  11. 11. Our culture is a very dynamic one. Throughout the years it has seen many changes; in fact our culture has drastically changed even in the past 100 years. Although many cultural changes are brought about by world events, even more changes are brought by technological innovations, such as the internet.
  12. 12. One recent example that immediately comes to mind was the debated Iranian election. Public outrage ensued when Mahmoud Ahmadi Nejad was re-elected in what seemed to be a rigged vote. The public of Iran rushed to the Internet posting pictures and videos from their phones from the protests. This was regarded as one of the first time a major protest was displayed in such a way. Thousands of people in Iran posted up to the minute updates on their “Twitter” pages, detailing police brutalities among other things. This is where net neutrality comes in, as the government started shutting down access to the Internet to quiet the public.
  13. 13. Who has the right to hold the reigns to the Internet? Do the telecommunication companies own the Internet? •The answer is no. Telecommunication companies are merely a means to an end. In other words, they are merely the gateway to the Internet; they don’t own the Internet themselves. •Telecommunication companies should be concerned with providing the best product to their customers rather than limiting their output. If they decide to change the current system, assuredly the people would not stand for it, nobody wants a regulated Internet (Press 2006).
  14. 14. What is at stake?  INNOVATION AND CREATIVITY  MARKET COMPETITION FREE AVAILABILITY OF INFORMATION FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION
  15. 15.  Provides Non- Discriminatory Access  Promotes Innovation and Creativity  Provides a Competitive Marketplace  Freedom of expression Pros
  16. 16.  Tiered internet could make for a better internet  Illegally downloading music, movies, software, etc. Copyright Cons
  17. 17. The Internet should be a neutral place for all of its users. Not all cars are created are the same, but all should be allowed on the highway. The same is true with Internet traffic. File sharing and increased usage, as well as profits are all issues to the Internet corporations. What this is about, though, is the consumer. It’s the consumer that the corporations should cater too, and it’s the consumer that counts. Conclusion
