Two-Sided Tuesday: Net Neutrality

Two-Sided Tuesday: Net Neutrality

Net Neutrality or Open Internet has started quite the debate – here is what the two sides say.

This week we break down the main arguments in two ways: how it could affect the consumer (you) and how it would affect the bigger picture (policies, the internet, etc.)

 

SIMPLE SOURCE NOTE:  Because of the nature of this topic, the arguments on both sides are what MIGHT happen.  Because the regulation of the internet is still developing, there is no way to know what would definitely happen.
