The Internet plays a more important role in the lives of people than ever before. The freedom online has been a blessing for many, who are able to create start-up companies and spread new ideas. Through the Internet some are able to succeed where they could not in the physical world, however that could change. The issue of network neutrality has sparked long and fiery debate in the United States. Net neutrality, succinctly, means that broadband providers should not discriminate where content comes from.
With this given power, cable companies will only take part in unfair and unjust decisions (Opposing Viewpoints In Context). Customers will be limited to what the cable companies provide, where net neutrality allows us to view whatever we want or need to see (Opposing Viewpoints In Context). With this power cable companies will create conflicts with each other over which company will get the more favorable and lease favorable sites to give better internet speeds to and gain more profit off of them (Opposing Viewpoints In Context). Some people however support the idea of cable companies having more control because you will be able to choose which company you want based on the sites they offer better internet speed to (Opposing Viewpoints In Context). I disagree, people should have the freedom to use any site they want to at any time (Opposing Viewpoints In Context).
Defenders of net neutrality argue that when there would be no network neutrality several problems would arise, with the main issue discrimination of content and the breach of freedom of speech. First ISP’s could prefer the content and applications of one business over another business. It may block the content altogether or make consumers pay to access the content. Furthermore it may slow some websites down who burden the channel capacity, websites like Netflix could be slowed down and therefor will not be able to provide proper service to its customers.
Background: What is Net Neutrality? Net Neutrality is the internet that everyone is used to. Net Neutrality is the basic principle that allows people to use the internet freely, without internet providing companies like AT&T and Verizon from blocking, or slowing anything down.
Developing countries getting the internet is not hard but the situation is not like Friedman describes, “Every color of the rainbow will be able to enter the workforce… they’re hungry for your jobs”, It’s overly exaggerated. In order for Friedman’s vision to come true, many things have to happen first. For instance, how to get the internet cheaply available for the masses, what languages the schools have to teach children growing up in their native country, how oversea income is cooperating with native governments,
Everything that we do is tracked, we all have a digital footprint on the web. Companies like Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, and Google are able to find personal things using calculations of what you do day to day. People do not realize that everything they do is tracked. I think it is an invasion of privacy but it is not against the law. We should all know by now that nothing is private on the web.
It has gotten to the point where bringing technology into your home willingly has the effect of you giving up some of your freedom and right to privacy granted by the Fourth Amendment. It shouldn’t have to be this way. Technology is advancing too fast for the courts to keep up, and revisions regarding technology should be made to the Constitution to align with today’s tech-savvy society. That being said, people also need to be more aware of the technology that they are using in their everyday lives and how it can limit their individual

"The government has a substantial amount of freedom when governing their nations. Their guiding principles are listed in the Constitution however, this does not prevent them from improvising and bending the rules to their benefit. One scenario is when the federal, state, and local government monitor the internet content of the people. What some people fail to recognize is it occurs more often than people think, and not only by the people in the government, but also by companies and corporations. Although the government and major companies can be deemed wrong for performing these acts, it can be argued that they are doing it for the safety of the citizens.
" Our generation is one known for the internet. Many of us have never known a world without the internet. A good thing about that is that we stay informed on subjects from all around. A bad thing is cyber-bullying and negativity. But no matter what negative or positive place we withhold on the internet, one thing that stays the same is government control.
Net neutrality benefits new developers opportunity to share their idea to the world without financially destroying them.

In other words, we can have free communication. For normal web users, the entire source of the internet is freely available. Losing the freedom of internet access could result in restricted access to websites; fewer download rights and so on. The topic of net neutrality has become controversial because several companies are trying to take away the freedom of internet access. There are people who think net neutrality is ethical; there are several reasons for it.
Currently, their websites run the same speed as the chain companies’. If net neutrality rules were changed, I think these small businesses would lose revenue from online sales. Their website would be much slower. People today want the fastest way to get things done, and waiting longer to shop online is not favorable. These small businesses’ would lose a large portion of their clients due to slow network speed.
It is regarded to by many as the greatest invention of all time. However, the internet has truly malformed the way we think. This may not seem like a big deal, but we are not conscious of the implications while exploring the internet. Media, especially can have people outraged by their short depictions of events because the majority of people are easily influenced due to the lack of reading and thought. The internet is obviously not all bad, it has revolutionized the way people connect and share information that is unparalleled by anything before it.
