As you have probably heard, last year the FCC voted to overturn our country’s net neutrality laws. Net neutrality basically means that all internet traffic is treated equally by different providers, so a small, local business would be treated the same as a giant company like Facebook. People are justifiably very nervous about this decision and how it will affect consumers.
A Twitter user in Paris who works as a data scientist believes that the real threat is not to consumers, but to small businesses, as he laid out in a detailed Twitter post that explains the situation pretty clearly. Read through this closely.
What do you think? Will the repeal of net neutrality spell the end of the Internet as we know it?
