What Was Net Neutrality Really About?
In laymen terms, what was net neutrality actually about? I understand that net neutrality is the principle that internet service providers (ISPs) must provide access to all internet content and applications regardless of its source, and without throttling or blocking particular websites and so on. But why did it seem so extremely important for ISPs to take control of the internet? I find it remarkable that Donald J. Trump gave the internet, which is said to be worth 16 trillion dollars, for just a few people to control.
Was it to control the flow of information? Did it have a political purpose that benefited republicans? What was net neutrality genuinely about?
