Jonathan Obar, a Quello Research Associate, spoke with WKAR regarding “net neutrality.” There has been a great deal of discussion 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. Jonathan’s interview provides a very accessible overview of the idea and the issues that have generated debate over the merits of net neutrality.
