On May 15th, the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) voted to move forward with their proposed rules for net neutrality: deeming that all internet traffic will be treated equally. This proposal, which will be open to public comment until September, would radically change the internet – ISP’s would be allowed to charge websites (such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) for faster service, which in turn would have consequences for those that utilize and frequent these websites. 150 companies (including Netflix and Amazon) have already reached out to the FCC to express their opinions on paid prioritization.
