Net Neutrality: Is the Internet a Public Utility?

Here is an awesome video from The Idea Channel.  According to the description: “Is the internet a public utility? No. Should it be? That’s an interesting question. The Internet, as we’ve said many a time, is a glorious series of tubes, and Internet Service Providers (ISPs) sell us access to those tubes. But the FCC is considering a new Two Tiered system, in which some companies could pay ISPs for faster delivery.

This topic (aka Net Neutrality) has made us think about the important role the internet plays in our lives. Is internet access so important that it should be classified as a public utility or common carrier, like water & electricity, or public buses and subways? Watch the episode and find out!”
