I cover the FCC’s net neutrality proposal in this week’s Occidental Weekly. Read on for a description of what net neutrality is, how it can affect you, and what it means for everyone using the internet. Here’s the article lead:
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) formally proposed rules mandating net neutrality on Oct. 22. Net neutrality, in general terms, is the theory that everyone should have equal and open access to the Internet. If the rules go into effect, things are likely to remain relatively the same as they currently stand—however, if the rules are stopped in Congress, it could affect the Internet experience of everyone, including users of Occidental’s network.
