There's been a lot of talk this week about net neutrality, the FCC, and "common carriers." We've been talking about these things for years, and while we all have a general idea of what it all means for the future of the internet, what exactly changed last week?
On this week's episode of What's Tech? Verge Editor-in-Chief Nilay Patel explains net neutrality. The recent historic vote by the FCC in favor of net neutrality will have a decisive impact on the future of the internet. But when did the pursuit of net neutrality begin? And what exactly is it?
Portions of this episode are excerpted from the State of the Net conference.
