Amazingly informational
23 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

With so much controversy around net neutrality, there is no better time to watch this movie. It cleared up all of my questions about the issue and gave me some insight and history on the matter. I would recommend this movie to anyone who is an avid internet user, as it pertains to all of those who access the internet.

While there has been a great deal of awareness raised, this movie is the next step to understanding the issue at hand. Understanding the legislation, politics, and business behind the issue of net neutrality is essential to keeping the internet free of corporate interests. Without information about net neutrality there is no way to contribute in the fight to preserve it.
