Patel 1 Biren Patel Carl Roach ENGL 112-013 3 December 2019 Classical argument of net neutrality The question, “should net neutrality be regulated?”, is something that comes up in the field of computer science a lot. With many reasons people says that the net neutrality must be regulated. According to some people, who supports regulated net neutrality, the internet was created with the idea that all data should be equal for all users. So, they can get access to all the content, also it should be neutral so that the Comcast and the Verizon of the world can provide the pipes but should have no say in what passes through them (Henry).
