New Concerns Over Net Neutrality

With the soaring popularity of video streaming, a deal between Netflix and Comcast raises new questions about net neutrality and the future of equal access on the Internet.

We take it for granted: the Internet as the great equalizer. We can read email, visit websites and watch videos without any one activity getting preferential treatment in the way its data is delivered to our computers. But a recent court ruling involving Verizon and the FCC and a deal between Netflix and Comcast are raising fears that so-called net neutrality could be in danger. Tech Tuesday explores the reality behind the headlines and the landscape for Internet service providers.
