 Net Neutrality: How it Impacts Singapore’s Internet Landscape

 Net Neutrality: How it Impacts Singapore’s Internet Landscape

On December 14, 2017, United State’s Federal Communication Commission voted to repeal a 2015 Obama-era Net Neutrality rule that protects equal access to all types of web content.

In a nutshell, this rule prevents Internet Services Providers (ISPs) from blocking or throttling access to certain websites or services, charging consumers for priority content, and treating broadband service as a utility (similar to a telephone service).

Led by FCC Republican Chairman, Ajit Pai, the 3-2 vote victory sealed its decision to dismantle the rule in order to protect the consumers and promote a vibrant competition. “Broadband providers will have more incentive to build networks, especially to underserved areas”, he added.

As controversial as it may be, many people are still scratching their heads as to what net neutrality is and how it will affect their broadband consumption–especially for users here in Singapore. As an organization that advocates for innovation and an open Internet, we at Vodien decided to write this article to explain the issues surrounding net neutrality and its impact on global consumers.
