Killing Net Neutrality - Should We Be Concerned?

Last Update: June 15, 2018

Net Neutrality is on the chopping block so what does that mean to the independent marketer?

The proposal, as I understand, would make it voluntary for providers to uphold net neutrality principles by including their position in the terms of service with customers.

One fear of this proposal is that internet speed will go to those that are willing to pay for it. The concern for smaller companies is they won't have the capital to be able to run with the Big Dogs.

The fear is they could impede traffic from smaller providers to favor their own services or possibly impose tolls on the little guy inhibiting consumer choice.

How does it impact WA member? I am not sure it does but we it is worthwhile to follow the analysis and articles to learn more.

I have not read the articles on Net Neutrality so I can't give an informed opinion.

Oh boy... well if they really do start charging us, then I can't afford to keep this up.

Concerned YES.

Consolidating internet services in a few big companies and allowing them to do what they want makes it possible for them to control what we can see and what messages we get.

It's already like that. Higher bandwidth on other web hosts than WA!
