I could use some help getting started, Professor Hodges. I know that I want to talk about Net Neutrality and it’s benefits. I know what I want to talk about but I’m not sure how I should be wording things and I feel I might be overlapping my reasoning for these. I’m not sure if overlapping my reasons would be beneficial since they lead in to my next cause or if it overlaps to the point where I’m repeating myself.
One thing I want to talk about is that with Net Neutrality, we have the ability to access websites on our time without internet providers intervening. It allows little companies to advertise on the internet since they don’t have to pay extra to be on the front page, they just have to wait for the ad on pop up on our devices. Without Net Neutrality, an internet provider like youmail over gmail, we would have to pay extra just to access gmail since our provider doesn’t like them.
Another thing is that without Net Neutrality, they could throttle your internet speed to the point where things aren’t accessible. If we enjoy something that our internet provider doesn’t, they would charge us more for it. They would also charge those companies that they don’t like more and if those companies refuse to pay then it wouldn’t be accessible. Companies such as Netflix that has become such a popular thing could pay. Internet providers would use this to their advantage since they know their users enjoy Netflix and would do anything to watch it, even if that means higher prices.
