Net Neutrality News

The issue of net neutrality is regarded by many as being the cornerstone of freedoms on the internet. As such it is a hotly debated topic. To stay up-to-date with all the developments and to get the latest net neutrality news, sign up for the tailored Wiser daily email. Net neutrality is the concept that all internet traffic should be treated equally. It primarily affects internet service providers, but can also be applied to governments. Net neutrality means that internet service providers cannot prioritize particular web traffic over other traffic. For example, it prevents a broadband provider from entering into a commercial relationship with a company that would see the company's competitors' websites blocked or slowed. How far net neutrality should go, and whether it should be enshrined in law, are issues that are currently being debated and discussed by the technology industry and by legislators. And you can keep abreast of developments in the debate with the Wiser net neutrality news email.
