Net Netutrality

Net Neutrality is a rights law that controls the power over communication online to keep it far and equal. This means that over the internet there is no discrimination and keeps free speech online. All internet service providers must obey¬†to this rule and aren’t allowed and forms of blocking over any networks. Examples of this for instance is the fact that a serves providers would allow you to view Netflix but can show videos on YouTube. Recently in March 2014 Netflix started to pays fees to Comcast to allow them faster network speed allowing users to access Netflix faster then other video sites. This was an issue because companies were seeing this act as a way of breaking this law. Though it wasn’t as some laws were removed some which would allow for ISP charging for data services. Now, from February 2015, new laws have been put forwards to tighten on Net Neutrality again.
