Net Neutrality

BBC News Technology (2014) using the analogy of net neutrality as a train, suggests that all the passengers (data) would be treated equally and that  there would be no extra charges for those who can pay and continuing the analogy suggests that without net neutrality it would be like first and second class on trains. It is also suggested that ISP’s argue that it is inevitable in today’s net world that there will be a tiered internet with a fast lane. BBC News Technology (2014) also says net neutrality “enshrines the whole ethos of an open internet, free from corporate control.”

According to The white house (2015) net neutrality “says that an entrepreneur’s fledgling company should have the same chance to succeed as established corporations, and that access to a high school student’s blog shouldn’t be unfairly slowed down to make way for advertisers with more money”.  This demonstrates that without net neutrality if you don’t wont to be slowed down you will have to pay more or be penalised.
