Editor's Notes

  1. The term net neutrality is new. But the idea behind it has existed since the invention of the telegram and has also been applied to other telecommunication technologies, like telephones. Telegrams and telephones have been considered what is called common carriers under U.S. law. This simply means that the companies that own your telephone line have been forbidden to give any preferential treatment to clients or their partners. Without this law, it could mean that if Comcast; partners up with Samsung they might give a discounted rate to people who buy a Galaxy while they raise the rate to anyone who buys let’s say an iPhone.
  2. The purpose of the FCC is to make sure phone companies offer fair pricing and access. But what does this have to do with the internet? Net neutrality is basically the idea that the internet should have the same law applied to it. And in 2015 the FCC gave us that protection when it placed the internet under the common carrier law. The most recent advocate to end net neutrality is the current newly appointed FCC chairman by way of Donald Trump, Ajit Varadaraj Pai. This means that internet service providers, like Comcast and AT&T; must treat everything on the internet the same.
  3. Comcast will not be allowed to block their users from competing search engines like Yahoo or Bing. Or if a Comcast customer uses an application on their computer like Bitorrent, which allows you to download files directly off of another person’s computer (which ends up being mostly porn, music and Game of Thrones), Comcast can’t block that application from internet access. And you might say that’s crazy to even think about – your internet providers blocking you from certain websites or applications – I mean we aren’t in elementary school anymore – and it isn’t the job of our internet service providers to regulate what we do on the internet – the job we pay them to do is simply provide us with open internet access. But that doesn’t stop them from doing it anyways. In fact a few years ago Comcast was secretly blocking Bitorrent on people’s computers from accessing the internet and didn’t stop until the FCC intervened. Another internet giant, AT&T;, was restricting their customer’s access to FaceTime.
  4. Origin Story Time!
  5. Net neutrality does not block all abilities that Internet service providers have to impact their customers' services.
  6. Comcast will not be allowed to block their users from competing search engines like Yahoo or Bing.

Another internet giant, AT&T;, was restricting their customer’s access to FaceTime.
  7. Why? To get their customers to purchase bigger data plans. And this is just the tip of the iceberg. One even compares net neutrality to vanilla ice cream. Jeffrey Dorfam, some econ professor, says that net neutrality is like if a store only has vanilla ice cream for sale. He says it limits people’s choices because many want and would pay for another flavor. However, this is exactly what net neutrality is trying to prevent. Giving the power to internet service providers to offer us only vanilla ice cream. We want chocolate, caramel and even green tea from time to time and we don’t want to pay for multiple internet service providers to get such a variety. We want freedom of choice and a plethora of different flavors that come from one source. Sure more internet service providers means more competition which might mean lower fees to purchase internet access. And that’s not a bad thing. But what most are scared of, is that our internet service providers choosing what types of applications or websites we can connect to. And again we don’t just want to connect to a vanilla flavored website.
