The principle of "net neutrality" states that your service provider
should treat all that data the same, allowing content from any source to
reach your computer without hindrance.
A decline in net neutrality could also have a negative impact on free
speech and innovation online. If corporations prioritize paid or
affiliated content, those without backing or the ability to pay may not
be able to reach an audience. Corporate-controlled service providers
could influence free speech by effectively freezing out anyone with
unpopular or counter-culture opinions.
