FCC Votes to Dismantle Network Neutrality

By: Delia Geyer/ Content Editor

One of the most commonly talked about political issues recently has been the discussion of Network (Net) Neutrality. The issue of Net Neutrality is pertinent to the lives of almost everyone because it affects how Internet Service Providers (ISPs) control speeds and websites. USA Today says, “Net Neutrality is the principle that ISPs should give consumers access to all legal content and applications on an equal basis, without favoring some sources or blocking others.” Net Neutrality was first set in place as a regulation during the Obama administration in 2015.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted in a three to two decision on Friday, December 14th, to strike down Net Neutrality.
