IN THE NEWS: Net Neutrality

If you have not heard about net neutrality, you obviously have not been around the internet. Me, as a child of the internet, am always on it. Whether I am watching YouTube videos, streaming Netflix videos, or searching for random things via Google, usually pictures from my favorite manga and anime. For those that are not aware of this, particularly in the United States, if a company refused to pay extra money, their service would be diminished in terms of speed. What this could mean to me? It could take forever for my YouTube videos to load or for me to be able to stream shows among other things. Also, as someone who produces content for the internet, people might not be able to find my content, whether or not they would want to read it or not. You just it takes forever to load because I cannot afford to make sure that people can consume content at an appropriate speed. But don’t just take my word for it. Seriously, when I talk about the news, don’t just take my word for it. Do your own research. I could be biased, and I am well aware of that. I would personally suggest going to https://www.battleforthenet.com/. This website includes a couple of videos on the subject that discusses the subject of net neutrality. Also, go to other sites. If Congress getting rid of this affects you, please go to the FCC and other sites in order shout out why you don’t want neutrality. The internet needs you.
