Definition of Net Neutrality

Net neutrality is the idea that service providers should not discriminate against any internet traffic and should instead treat it all equally.

This means that regardless of the source, destination, or type of information, Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and governments are not permitted to favor, degrade, or ban any content, apps, services, or websites.

By guaranteeing a level playing field, Net Neutrality allows users to access the full spectrum of online content and services without facing restrictions from ISPs.
