There are some business groups which are questioning rules on net neutrality. What is net neutrality and how can it impact your startup?
The principle behind net neutrality is that all internet traffic is treated equally. However, the latest news regarding this is that the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is subjecting broadband Internet service to common carrier regulation which means that with the National Broadband Plan, everyone in the U.S. would be entitled to have broadband capability. This proposed FCC neutrality rules is yet to be approved but when it does happen small businesses would have a better opportunity for growth. If you are thinking of starting an internet business, this new FCC proposal can mean a huge boost for your business since you can expect intensive usage of your target market as bandwidth is stretched.
