There has been a lot of recent buzz around the idea of net neutrality and how it will affect people’s everyday use of the internet. Net neutrality is the debate over free use of the internet and has been going on for several years now.

The Federal Communications Commission recently weighed in with a controversial plan to create a so-called internet “fast lane.” Current State discussed what regulatory changes to the internet might mean with Jonathan Obar, a Michigan State University assistant professor and associate director of the Quello Center for Telecommunications Management and Law.

Obar says people should be interested and involved in this issue because it effects everyone who uses the internet.
