Net neutrality is a hot-button issue. In the tech world, many people advocate for the requirement that Internet providers give all websites equal speed of access. Entrepreneur Josh Steimle isn’t one of them: He makes the case against additional government regulation. While Steimle’s argument feels simplistic, his opinion is a rare counterpoint to that of the masses who support net neutrality. While always politically neutral, getAbstract recommends this against-the-grain argument to anyone trying to look at all sides of the net neutrality debate.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why the US government shouldn’t legislate net neutrality,
- How enforcing net neutrality could violate citizens’ privacy and
- Why more regulation may mean “less freedom” in the long term.
