Слайд 1

What is “net neutrality” and why should I care?

Слайд 2

Think of this space as “how much info can be delivered to you.” Notice, it’s finite.

Слайд 3

You may be under the impression everything delivered over the internet has the same opportunity to get to you as fast as your connection allows.

Слайд 4

Not true.

Слайд 5

Some companies have struck deals with internet providers to have their content delivered via a “fast lane” of sorts.

Слайд 6

And when there’s a fast lane, there’s a slow lane.

Слайд 7

The FCC has come in favor of keeping internet bandwidth neutral in attempt to prevent companies from paying for preferential treatment

Слайд 8

because they’re worried market forces will compel internet providers to devote more bandwidth to premium content providers able to pay for speed.

Слайд 9

Letting Internet providers use “pay-to-play” would put startup sites and smaller companies at a disadvantage.

Слайд 10

Today, 2/26/15, day, the FCC enacted its strongest-ever rules on net neutrality, preserving an open Internet by prohibiting broadband providers from blocking or slowing content that flows across their pipes.

Слайд 11

The internet will remain “open.”

Слайд 12

Companies like Verizon and Comcast say the cost of playing by these new rules will force them to cut back on investments in new technologies, “stifling their ability to innovate.”

Слайд 13

Don’t believe them for a second. You know what will drive these companies to invest and innovate, regardless?

Слайд 14


Слайд 15

An open internet puts everyone in the same boat. Web developers everywhere must continue to meticulously refine their code to deliver robust content in as light and efficient manner as possible.

Слайд 16

Thanks FCC Chairman, Tom Wheeler. Sincerely, Internet Users Everywhere
