'Net neutrality' a potential strain on consumers

Tech Yeah! Net neutrality

Google, Facebook and at least 100 other online giants have penned a letter to the Federal Communications Commission tackling issues associated with "net neutrality."

The tech companies are proponents to the concept that all Internet traffic should be treated equally, while the FCC plan is to allow broadband companies to charge content providers for access to the fastest lanes on the Internet.

It's a complicated issue that pulls consumers in to the mix as well.
