What is net neutrality?
should the people who provide access to the internet be able to interfere in or to control, to some extent, what content we are allowed to see or what content we are allowed to create on the internet?
- Internet Service Providers (ISPs) are those who put things in place for you to be able to access the web.
- Content providers are those who put the content in the web. Even you can be a content provider!
- Regulatory bodies are those who set and enforce the rules for all this to happen smoothly.
- The users, the people! They are those who pay and use the services and the content of the web.
Do you know if your ISP controls the data that you consume and provide through the Internet? And if so, how?
What are the regulations in your country around net neutrality?
