Beyond Boston – Regional News Show presents…. Understanding Net Neutrality and the Future of Our Internet: A Panel Discussion. This panel discussion addresses Net Neutrality, our Internet future and what efforts are taking place to fight against this war on information access.
Net neutrality officially ends on April 23rd! Net neutrality rules were created to make sure all internet traffic is treated equally and enables freedom of the press, expression, and speech in the digital age. Despite the clear importance of net neutrality, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted to eliminate net neutrality and change the way Americans access the internet. The telecom industry cheered the move; the tech industry and consumer advocacy groups hated it. But the battle isn’t over yet!
