🌐What Do You Think About Internet Neutrality?

Internet neutrality is a term introduced by Tim Wu, a law professor of Columbia University, in 2003. It refers to the principle that Internet Service Providers (ISPs) must not discriminate or put a different charge based on a specific criterion such as, who is the user, the type of content, the website, type of platform used, etc.

Internet neutrality makes the ISPs cannot charge differently, block, or slow down a specific online content or website. However, internet neutrality does not remove the ability of ISPs to block several contents due to regulatory purpose. For example, in Indonesia, pornography content and gambling are blocked by the ISPs. This blocking does not violate the net neutrality because the blocking was done on a local basis.

What do you think about net neutrality? Should we let the internet be a neutral space for everyone?

It should not, I personally believe that there should be some regulations on the internet usage. Porn and gambling like in your country should not be allowed to be accessed unregulated. It’s as  harmful as drug abuse and can destroy communities once left unregulated.

I don’t think that’s done.
There must be restrictions and regulations governing it.
For example, in my country, there must be regulations prohibiting porn and gambling sites.

Internet neutrality should not be allowed and accessed by any person and being specific to children as it encourages sexual immorality.

He who pays the piper calls the tune. If we open up the net, will the big boys kick the small boys out of business? Let’s allow net neutrality and see what happens.

Internet is just a digital tool. It should be some regulations to prevent violence, pornografi and other nasty things. So the answer on this question is that Internet neutrality should not be allowed.
