Net neutrality, debated for years in the United States, has now reached China’s Internet shoreline. Guang Pu, editor for tech media company PingWest, explains how Chinese tech giant Tencent’s partnership with Internet provider China Unicom is threatening the existence of net neutrality. He implores the public to take a stronger interest in the subject but, ironically, his appeal for net neutrality comes at a time when China doesn’t even allow an open Internet. getAbstract recommends this article to economists, social activists, people working in tech start-ups and corporations, and anyone interested in protecting Internet equality.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why Chinese net neutrality is in jeopardy,
- How the net neutrality crisis is different in China than it is in the West, and
- How net neutrality could affect consumers.
