Discussion on: Explain Net Neutrality Like I'm Five

mangel0111 profile image

The nice guy who provide you internet, can decide what sites are cool what others don't. So he can punish some sites to make it real slow, and then can offer you an extra fee to speed up some material.

So, a provider could decide that all the Netflix traffic will be reduce, then will offer you a Netflix package extra to enjoy a best service.

And the same with all the sites, YouTube, Google, Hulu or whatever.

Basically they can manage his traffic how they preffer without any law making they be fare (or neutral) with how they decide.
