The causes of Net Neutrality - The Net Neutrality act can be looked at from many angels and seen as many different things; some say it's about our freedom to use the internet for whatever we choose to (so long as it's within legal means). Others see it as preventing Internet Service Providers (ISP's) from controlling what services we use, or website we visit in order to earn more money. In a negative light, Net Neutrality can be seen as an attempt by “Internet Pirates” to fight a losing battle with publishers cutting down their forms of beating the system....   [tags: internet service providers, freedom]

Traffic and Net Neutrality - ... Each month, Netflix puts out a ISP speed index that measures the average speed a user can be expected to get while watching. In January 2014, Comcast ranked #13 on this list. In the months that followed and as of April of this year, Comcast has jumped up the list ten spots to #3, nearly doubling the throughput of just a couple of months earlier.

On February 23, 2014, Netflix signed a deal with Comcast which would allow them to speed up their service by providing Comcast direct access to Netflix’s servers, bypassing peer providers like Cogent Communications....   [tags: ISPs, Netflix] 1966 words
