What is Net Neutrality and how could its loss rock the world as you know it?  Way back in 1995, when the Internet was young, the rules were established that guaranteed nobody could have undue influence over the speed at which information was disseminated.  What this meant to everyone online was that the big multinational conglomerates, which already had a stranglehold on the radio and TV airwaves wouldn't be allowed to monopolize cyberspace.  So from 1995 to the present, the Internet had one speed limit for all.  Online businesses both big and small could prosper.  However, recent events by a number of cable conglomerates are threatening the way in which we all surf the web -- and not for the better.  If you value your ability to work and play online, tune into this episode where we'll tell you how the loss of net neutrality could rock your world. And what -- if anything -- you can do about it.
