Net Neutrality (or Open Internet) is based on a concept where internet service providers (ISPs) deliver web traffic and content to consumers without any bias. Consumers would be able to access content of their choice without their broadband provider editing or censoring it prior. Net neutrality effects small and large scale business but in a different way (Finley, 2010). Business are aware of the fact that the internet speed matters and the website loading speed should be better than competitor’s website, else the customers would flee. Net neutrality is essential for consumer choice. It gives equal opportunity to all businesses whether small or large scale to display their content without the service providers altering the content, bandwidth and regulating the web traffic. Without net neutrality the consumers would be forced to access a distorted content where information is modified as per the financial interests of telecom and cable services (Lambert, 2015).

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
