Net Neutrality

Recently, the Federal Communications Commission decided to eliminate most of the net neutrality regulations that required broadband providers to inform customers about how they manage their networks.

The Next Idea

In the early 1990s, I visited billionaire George Soros’ office in New York City to provide some direction on an investment his firm had made in a technology startup run by senior Israeli Air Force officers. Their technology was something akin to an iPod, and this was almost a decade before you could store your entire music collection on a device the size of a bar of soap.

Activists gather along President Obama's motorcade route in Los Angeles on July 23, 2014, to push for net neutrality.

When a federal court of appeals upheld net neutrality, a lot of people applauded. Equal access to the internet for everyone seems right.

Right?

Well, there are some concerns. Not all internet use is the same.

The U.S. Federal Communications Commission is expected to vote tomorrow on a proposal that could impact the way you use and pay for your Internet.

The debate is around "net neutrality."
