Net Neutrality No More

By Raymond Santiago

The United States Federal Communications Commission voted to repeal Internet regulations enacted during President Obama’s administration. These regulations assured a free and open playing field for everyone. Known as Net Neutrality, it prevented large telecommunication companies from treating data on the internet differently. Internet service providers (ISP) will no longer be prevented to discriminate or apply different charges based on user, content, application or websites on may wish to visit and use. The possible implications for libraries pose potential threats to the ways we access and provide information to our patrons.
