Net neutrality is an effort to allow you unconditional use of the internet. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announces a plan to formalize the idea of net neutrality. The move, which supports a campaign promise made by President Barack Obama, will prevent the information superhighway from becoming a toll road giving preferential treatment to those who pay for it.

The announcement is predicted to expand the scope of the concept of net neutrality to include broadband wireless service. A formal net neutrality guideline preventing preferential treatment of certain content or services could be applied to situations like the Google Voice app rejection by Apple, which the FCC is already investigating.

The battle lines get a little foggy at times. The convergence of cable TV, Internet service, mobile communications, and entertainment can make it difficult sometimes to tell whether a given entity would be harmed by or benefit from the ability to accelerate bandwidth for. certain applications while throttling bandwidth for others. One provider's preferential treatment is another provider's discrimination.
