What is Net Neutrality ?

Net Neutrality is a principle to offer restriction free internet to end users. This principle states that internet should be neutral to end users and no restriction can be made from the part of internet providers and government. Net Neutrality is a network paradigm that argues internet service providers should be completely detached from what information is sent over the network. The service providers can prioritize no information over the other, the paradigm argues like this. Internet should be very useful and most efficient to the common people, it should not be focused on a particular lot.

Service providers are trying to implement tiered internet. Using this approach each content providers need to pay some fees to the service providers to keep their website in upper tier. If no fee is given to the service providers then low bandwidth is provided to the respective websites.

Neutrality protagonists argue that telecom service providers want to create a artificial scarcity, oblige content providers to buy the bandwidth or the services will turn to be uncompetitive. Protagonists and deuteragonists also want to preserve the current freedom of internet and they are completely against the tier approach.

The information passing through the internet should be controlled by the content providers and end users, not by the service provider. Service providers are standing in between the content providers and end users and they want to make money from what information they are passing through their network. If the content providers choose to pay the fee, they pass the cost to end users. If they don’t want to pay the fees the end users suffer with slow loading. Anyways what ever be the decision from the part of the content providers, the end users are the worst sufferers. End user s face the consequences of slow page loading and monetary loss.
