The Future of Web Development Without Internet Neutrality

Posted in Blogging, Freelance, News, Social Media4 months ago • Written by

Internet neutrality has been under siege by corporations and world governments for several years now. They are discovering that it’s not just a tool for communication and entertainment, but also to spread ideas across borders and elicit action beyond governing.

The Internet has given birth to many important services, inventions, and ideologies. Not only that, it has also provided millions of people entertainment and access to instant communication. With that in place, who wants the Internet to be limited?

Net neutrality, in the most basic sense, means everyone gets equal treatment on the Internet no matter where, what ISP they use, and network they connect to. It passively encourages creative experimentation which has given birth to many startups over the last decade – some of which are controversial like Megaupload.
