Kim's Net Neutrality Blog
Net Neutrality is important for teens to know, because it helps them realize how much freedom net neutrality allows us to have and helps us not take it for granted. It also helps teens learn more about I.S.P and what their jobs are and how they affect net neutrality. It helps them see that Internet Service Providers doesn’t give us the freedom that we deserve to have on our website. Net neutrality is also important for teens to know because it treats all the data you get from a website fairly and keeps it safe. Like, for example if you were trying to get on both YouTube and Facebook, the internet and the I.S.P's could limit your speed and charge you while net neutrality would allow you to browse and access both freely and not make you pay a charge.
I.S.Ps want to charge you for almost every time you get on your network. Unlike Net Neutrality which allows every website you visit to have no limits for you usage. Net Neutrality also gives you freedom to use any website you want and doesn’t charge you a monthly fee for the website you are using. Internet Service Providers also want to control how much internet you use which limits your time on it. They create illegal downloads which charge you for how much internet you use and this is not fair.
Companies like Comcast and Verizon can be very crafty and can block a website or source you want to use and make their own and charge you for it. This makes you pay more money while you can easily use a website that would charge you less. This is why Net Neutrality is so important because t lets you use any website you want. Open Internet, which is another way to say free internet, avoids high and unfair prices, it limits competitiveness from other companies, it allows more ideas, and allows you to use any speech you want.
