When you go online, you expect it to be just as easy to watch highlights from last night’s game as it is to keep up with the headlines or shop at your favorite shoe outlet. That’s because of something called net neutrality.
Net neutrality prevents internet service providers (ISPs) like Verizon and Comcast from dictating the kinds of content you're able to access online. Instead, ISPs have to treat all traffic sources equally. But the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is working to permanently get rid of net neutrality protections.
