Net neutrality has been a big headline multiple times in the past few years and despite there being a lot of arguing, no real resolution has ever been reached. Today that argument is once again back in the headlines but this time it is looking like good news. President Obama officially announced today that he and the White House support net neutrality and they will be pushing cable companies to support it as well.
In the past there has been some serious opposition to net neutrality, primarily because it severely hurts cable and internet providers. The fact that the government is starting to push for net neutrality to become a reality is absolutely fantastic news. Net neutrality is pretty much fully supported by the average citizen in both America, and around the world, and this is very likely the first step towards it become real.
Obviously this isn’t the end of the conversation, but it is a great way to get it started again. Net neutrality is all but required if internet prices are going to remain low and speeds high, so now is the time to once again celebrate that there is finally some positive light being shined on the entire industry.
