Net Neutrality affects every single one of us. If one were to take note of the ever-increasing rate at which innovations have been made in social media, smartphone apps, and computing, then how could one say that the very regulations that keep the internet open are a detriment to progress? The World Wide Web, the portion of the Internet used by 99 percent of users, was created to be open source, and remain open source, to encourage innovation and sharing of knowledge.
