NET NEUTRALITY AND THE FUTURE OF INTERNET ACCESS:
A Panel Discussion organized by Somerville Community Access Television

net_neutrality cartoon1On Jan. 14, 2014, the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C., struck down the Federal Communications Commission’s Open Internet Order. Because of a recent rule change, Internet provider companies like Verizon and Comcast can now block or slow down any website, application, or service they like. Companies will be able to create tiered pricing structures with fast lanes for those websites that can afford the tolls, and slow lanes for everyone else.

Previously, all websites had to be treated equally by the Internet providers, a policy known as Net Neutrality. This means that Net Neutrality is no longer required by law. To help explain this new situation and its likely effects, Somerville Community Access Television has organized a special event with an expert panel to discuss this issue, which will impact many Internet users who use the web each day.

  • The panel discussion is scheduled for March 25 at Tufts University. It is free and open to the public. 7:00-9:00pm, Tufts Tisch Library, Room 304
  • Contact: Erica Jones, Outreach Coordinator, SCATV, programming@SCATVsomerville.org 617-628-8826
