12 July 2017
Today, July 12, 2017, is a day of action to save net neutrality. Net Neutrality is based on the idea that all ISPs treat all data equally whatever type of content it is. The Federal Communication Commission in the USA wants to change this and allow ISPs to choose which data is sent more quickly and which sites get blocked or throttled (slowed down for competitive reasons. This would, therefore, provide a two-tier internet with large winners and losers depending on your ISP and having to pay more for certain services. The FCC is pushing to overturn net neutrality rules bought in 2015, with a vote taking place later this year. This will affect us all no matter where you live especially if you use the internet for your business in the UK and overseas. You can find more information at https://www.battleforthenet.com.
