What is Net Neutrality?

Update: June 3, 2017: Read more about Net Neutrality in this post by Lavanya Rathnam on Cloudwards (What is Net Neutrality and Why is it Important?). January 2, 2015: Read more about the upcoming vote at http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/01/02/fcc-net-neutrality-feb-vote_n_6408854.html. According to Wikipedia, net neutrality is …the principle that Internet service providers and governments should treat all data on the Internet equally, not discriminating or charging differentially by user, content, site, platform, application, type of attached equipment, or mode of communication. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Net_neutrality) But what does this truly mean for Internet users? According to net neutrality, high volume users would be charged the same amount as low volume users. Currently, many national carriers charge extra fees for users who surpass a set amount of bandwidth usage (i.e., users who stream video from Netflix, Amazon or other online entertainment providers). Likewise, service providers with high bandwidth usage (Netflix for example) are being charged more by national carriers to stream their services to their customers, which in turn, raises the price for their subscribers. Thus, our user who streams video and goes over their plan’s allotted amount will be charged more for the service. Our user will also be charged more for their subscription because their provider (Netflix for example) is paying more to stream their content. Therefore, without net neutrality, the end user stands to be hit with...

FCC Votes to Regulate Internet Access

In a vote of three in favor and two opposed, the FCC voted to approve regulating Internet service like a public utility, prohibiting companies from paying for faster lanes on the Internet. In other words, net neutrality won out over the objection of major carriers (AT&T, Verizon, ComCast, et.al.). A brief video explaining net neutrality is featured below: Rather than inhibit Internet infrastructure expansion, I believe that creating a level playing field for everyone will foster greater growth and...

What is Broadband and why is it important?

Broadband is simply a word used to identify a high-speed connection to the Internet. Whether you are using a computer (desktop or laptop), a smartphone or tablet, your device will send and receive data via a connection to Internet. Broadband speeds are much faster than dial-up where the user connects via a standard telephone modem that dials a number in order to connect. The FCC’s initial designation of minimum broadband speed was 4 Mbps download and 1 Mbps upload. This...
