We have heard many “end of the world” commentaries as a result of the FCC’s repeal of the net neutrality rules. Although my personal preference is to have a neutral internet, I also do not believe that this legislation is the end of the world or the internet is truly over. The current regulatory environment in the U.S. has yielded a costly and slow internet, which is also not great for internet-based innovations. Moreover, we have never really had a truly neutral internet, and that environment has yielded some amazing innovations. Therefore, it is important for panicked individuals and organizations to take a step away from the ledge.
