net neutrality is about open access

Net Neutrality.

Arguably one of the largest threats to open democracy and freedom of information and content at the moment as it is being decided upon by people who don’t “get it” and people who want to financially control it, particularly in the USA. If the large telcos like Verizon are permitted to throttle parts of the internet for their own benefit, it will have huge repercussions worldwide, both politically and socially.

Beyond the principle of a neutral and unfettered access to any part of the internet or www, issues of content or functionality or services become moot.

This explains it better than I could.
