Network Neutrality

By Ema Woodward, Phil Denny, & Scott Harrison

what is network neutrality
What is Network Neutrality?
  • Network neutrality is a principle which proposes that there should be no restrictions with regards to user access networks
  • This means no restrictions on content, sites, equipment being used, modes of communication, etc.
  • Also, if two users are paying for the same level of access, then they should be able to connect to each other at that level
  • Since the early 2000s, net neutrality supporters have argued against the ability for broadband providers to block applications and content
  • In recent years, net neutrality has been up for debate, especially in the U.S.
