In a report leaked yesterday, both the New York Times and Wall Street Journal reported the FCC was poised to reverse its stance on Net Neutrality.
This decision would allow Internet Service Providers the ability to discriminate web traffic on their networks, allowing certain content to be delivered faster versus other content. While these rules likely won't affect the average internet consumer, users who use a high amount of bandwidth such as video streaming or online gaming will likely see their prices rise as companies have to pay more money in order to be able to deliver their products.
A good primer to read on this issue is straight from Kotaku, which explains the issue and how it could affect gamers.
Do you fear an internet where net neutrality is dead, or are you more hopeful that it won't be so different after all?
