Net Neutrality means that bandwidth (in this case, a measure of internet access speed) is not determined by your carrier based on content. That is, you pay for a certain speed (say, 3Mbps), and you get that speed for any site you access — unless the site itself is limited by its own server (for example). Right now, certain companies, like Verizon, are trying to legally eliminate Net Neutrality so that they can control what we see and how fast it is served up to us. This obviates one of the internet’s major benefits, that is that corporations don’t get to determine who can post or see what. I consider this attempt to eliminate internet freedom deleterious. If you do too, please take a look at the following site and consider signing their petition to preserve Net Neutrality:
