What is net neutrality

Net neutrality has been abolished. Fast lane or slow lane and selective lane

Since the inception of the internet the concept of net neutrality meant that all data is equal in the eyes of the internet service providers (ISPs), which means that all content has to be streamed to our computers and mobile devices in equal speed and quality. It seems however, from now on, some data will be more equal than other, with priority of delivery given to the highest bidders.

In short, ISPs will be able to “hide” some content by delivering it through a slow lane and this is likely to restrict our choice and limit our ability to consume information in a neutral way. Read more about this very interesting topic .

There is also a radio interview I did with one of the radio station which goes into a bit more detail on how this topic is likely to affect you as an individual or your business. Read in more detail Net neutrality vote in the European Parliament. What does it really mean?
