Net Neutrality

Companies like AT&T, Verizon, Comcast and Time Warner are trying to "control" the internet, limiting bandwith to to competing sites, and deciding what sites even load at all. Read below to learn more about network neutrality, and how big-name companies are trying to manipulate the internet for profit.

What is Network Neutrality?

Network Neutrality — or "Net Neutrality" for short — is the guiding principle that preserves the free and open Internet.

Net Neutrality ensures that all users can access the content or run the applications and devices of their choice. With Net Neutrality, the network's only job is to move data — not choose which data to privilege with higher quality service. Net Neutrality prevents the companies that control the wires from discriminating against content based on its source or ownership.

Net Neutrality is the reason why the Internet has driven economic innovation, democratic participation, and free speech online. It's why the Internet has become an unrivaled environment for open communications, civic involvement and free speech.
