If net neutrality is eliminated, Internet service providers will be able to charge companies more money for faster internet speeds, allowing these companies to enter the “fast lane” when it comes to disseminating content to consumers. The Googles of the world won’t have trouble paying for this, but smaller companies without big budgets would be forced into the “slow lane.” It would be harder, if not impossible, for small businesses to “go viral” or gain popularity by offering good content if they can’t afford the fast lane of the internet.
Additionally, consumers may see a spike in their internet bill. Forbes speculates the telecom companies could bundle websites in the same way they currently bundle TV channels, forcing you to choose which sites you want loaded quickly on your devices. This sounds like a lose-lose proposition!
