1. Net Neutrality is important for teens to understand and learn about because the FCC are the
ones that basically the ones that dictate your life on the internet. Teens need to be aware that
when they are logged onto the internet it is not private. With reading the article and the
discussions in class there is a need that teens and anyone in general needs to understand their
standing and the standing of their internet.
2. Google have spoken out a while ago about Net Neutrality. They were commenting on how a
large amount of internet providers slow down and speed up the internet that you are able to get.
Google stated ¨If Internet access providers can block some services and cut special deals that
prioritize some companies’ content over others, that would threaten the innovation that makes
the Internet awesome,” adding “No Internet access provider should block or degrade Internet
traffic, nor should they sell ‘fast lanes’ that prioritize particular Internet services over others.” I
think that internet providers should stick to their jobs and provide customers internet. I also
agree with what Google stated about blocking things from the internet would threaten the
awesomeness of the internet.
3. Many of the ISPs say that they feel like they have the right to control and block things that are
on the internet. They say that since other countries are able to censor sites; they want to do the
same and block sites that can threaten their business. Also if they do not have net neutrality
they will only be able to block sites that they feel like that are competion towards the company.
The site where I was able to provide this insight also said that both parties have valid opinions
that they both have to consider.
