Net Neutrality is important for teens to understand for many, many reasons. I think, personally, the biggest and most important reason is due to the fact teens use the internet the most. 94% of kids age 12-17 use the internet daily, and 81% use social networking. This, of course, is kind of huge since net neutrality is going to slowly ruin the internet for all of us, especially those of us who use it this much.
Another huge reason is that it will cost all of us the ability to roam openly on the internet without worry. The direct definition of Net Neutrality is as followed.
"The principle that Internet service providers should enable access to all content and applications regardless of the source, and without favouring or blocking particular products or websites."
Without it, we can't do a lot of things we really want to. What if one day your ISP decided that if you or your parents didn't pay for it, you wouldn't have access to youtube. How would you feel?
The last reason I think important, as sort of said above, is that it will cost money. Teenagers tend to rely on family members, specifically parental guardians, for internet access. The lack of net neutrality would mean your parents might just have to pay more for certain things they might not use. So basically you need to know because it really affects you in the most ways because you are the one using it.
