ABSTRACT
The article discusses the concept of net neutrality, that is, Internet network neutrality. A definition of net neutrality is presented where user access to the Internet and its content is free and open to all Internet users with no discrimination. Net neutrality, the article states, ensures that Internet service providers (ISP) cannot slow down, speed up, or restrict Internet content for any reason. Commentary is provided by Columbia Law School professor Tim Wu and a Google Inc. guide to net neutrality. Threats to net neutrality are presented including a U.S. Federal Communications Commission decision in 2005 and efforts by cable and telephone companies to create a two-tiered Internet pricing scheme. Issues of net neutrality and their effects on healthcare are also discussed.
