Why You Should Care About Net Neutrality (in 1 paragraph)

Wondering why so many of your tech savvy friends are up in arms about the repeal of Net Neutrality? Here’s my answer in 1 paragraph…

Nearly 40% of the US has only 1 “choice” for broadband internet because of legislated monopolies lobbied for by those same providers. If net neutrality is wiped out not only can your favorite services be negatively impacted (think Netflix raises prices because Comcast charges them more – or you start seeing buffering on Netflix because of throttling- yes, that happened pre 2015), but many of the Netflix’s, Facebook’s, and Googles of tomorrow will likely never see the light of day if they have to pay to play as they start to reach critical mass. If there was real competition and real choice, I would have no issue. But there is not, and that’s the problem.

…do I hope I’m wrong? Of course, but the real course of action should be to eliminate all legislated monopolies first so that competition can happen. Then, maybe, consider what is under way… but if you have any trust in ISPs to make your life better… well, could I interest you in a bridge?
