Net Neutrality, or what we prefer to call Net Equality, is the concept of treating internet data the same regardless of who it comes from or where it’s going.

You’re going to be reading a lot in the coming months/year about what it is, what it isn’t, and what it means for you. This is an incredibly important topic that is unsurprisingly complicated.
