Artist Illustrates What Loss Of Net Neutrality Looks Like – And It’s Truly Disturbing!

The internet as we know it will never be the same without net neutrality.

Net neutrality has recently been a hot topic – for very valid reasons. Internet users in the United States are at a risk of losing it and many are understandably furious about it.

What is net neutrality anyway and why is it such a big deal these days? Read on and we’ll give you more details about it plus we’ll share with you a thought-provoking comic made by a talented illustrator.

A post by Ranker tells us that there are two main factors when it comes to learning about net neutrality.

“First, granting access to information based an individual or business’ ability to pay — which is the goal of the FCC and others against net neutrality — is a way to keep poor and working-class folks in a vicious cycle of poverty, cutting them off from information, education, and, in a way, liberation.”

The article continued:

“Second, the loss of net neutrality would mean that a handful of internet service providers (ISPs) and their preferred corporate clients are legally allowed to skim a massive profit off those individuals and businesses who are able to pay for higher levels of service.”

This means that things we normally enjoy on the internet such as using social media or sending emails could possibly become “expensive, slow and even impossible,” Ranker wrote.

Now check out how one College Humor artist named Karina Farek described what would eventually happen if we ever lose net neutrality in the future.

The internet as we know it will never be the same without net neutrality.

Internet Service Providers will have the ability to slow your internet down anytime.

Basically, “you get what you pay for” will be the rule of the day.

Because loss of net neutrality means losing the privilege of using the internet freely.

The scenario will likely cost you more for less.

And that’s definitely not a good thing!

More or less, there will be fast and slow lanes for internet users when that happens. Those in the fast lane are, of course, those who willingly pay for premium services. Meanwhile, the rest of us will have to settle with what our pockets can afford.

What do you think about this, netizens?
