The Internet and Network Neutrality (What it means and where We’re Headed)

Over twenty million comments were filed with the Federal Communications Commission prior to its December 14, 2017, decision to eliminate open Internet access, or “net neutrality.” This unprecedented level of interest from the general public was fired by widespread speculation about whether the FCC’s action would result in what one commissioner called a “Mad Max version of the Internet,” lacking in rules and consumer protections. Hear about how the debate came to this point, how the FCC’s action will affect Internet users, and what happens next. Presented by Douglas Povich with the Fairfax County Department of Cable and Consumer Services. Adults, Teens.
