Net neutrality, the policy that has governed internet providers for the past 15 years, is expected to be rolled back in two weeks when the FCC votes on the proposal. Net neutrality is the idea that internet service providers should give consumers access to all legal content and apps equally, without favoring some or blocking others. Internet providers say they need those regulations lifted to earn more revenue so they can increase investment – meaning they could potentially create better internet service and build infrastructure in underserved rural communities. Critics, such as Professor Tim Wu who coined the term net neutrality, say just because there is more revenue, doesn’t mean there will be more investment.
