More than 1 billion websites exist in cyberspace, and you can view whichever sites you wish. This is an idea called net neutrality. It means that Internet Service Providers (ISPs) must provide equal access to all websites. In February, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) proposed a set of rules to support net neutrality. Without the rules, an ISP could make certain websites load faster or slower. This idea is called Internet “fast lanes.” For example, a streaming video site could use a fast lane by paying an ISP so that its website would load faster than a competitor’s site. Instead, each website now has equal access to the broadband networks.
