Why Net Neutrality Matters

In the United States, the FCC will vote whether to delete net neutrality on December 14, 2017. This decision will also have consequences for Canadian Internet users. Canadians should follow closely what is happening in the United States.

Without Net Neutrality your Internet Service Provider can:

  • Charge you extra to reach certain websites;
  • Slow down streaming services like Netflix or Hulu that compete with their personal streaming services;
  • Block some websites altogether.

In order words, without Net Neutrality, the Internet won’t be free and open.

This is something that nobody can afford to ignore. We have to make sure that policymakers understand that Net neutrality is not negotiable.

What can be done to save net neutrality?
