Stuck in Neutral on the Information Superhighway
In a split decision last week, the FCC voted to move forward with its net neutrality proposal. While the proposal doesn’t permit internet service providers (ISPs) to slow down service, the wording leaves room for ISPs to guarantee faster traffic for those who pay more. For some, the two are essentially the same: they still put certain people in the slow lane. Now the FCC has opened the discussion to the public.
So what might life be like in a future where you can’t afford fast-tracked internet for streaming movies and marketing your business?
