What is net neutrality?
Net neutrality is the idea that the web is open to everyone, meaning that internet service providers can’t block content or intentionally slow down load times for particular websites.

Why would internet service providers want to change that?
Because ISPs like Comcast, Verizon and AT&T could make a substantial profit by charging users to access certain websites or by charging extra for “fast lanes” that allow internet companies willing to pay to bypass slower bandwidth.
