The internet has become an integral part of modern life. It is considered a great equalizer. But is it, really? The topic of net neutrality, which in the simplest terms, means keeping the internet open, has captured the imagination of the public. This week, discussions on the regulation of the internet will move to Congress. FCC commissioner Tom Wheeler is expected to present net neutrality rules to the House Subcommittee on Communications and Technology. The commission is attempting to create a level-playing field on the internet, or enforce net neutrality, which has its detractors (notably the chairperson of the aforementioned subcommittee Greg Walden). However, FCC is also saying that the pay-to-play fast lane does not compromise net neutrality.
