Net Neutrality: Utility, Economics, Zero-Rating and the Canadian Response

Hi everyone. This week Jonathan, Jade, Jonah, and Dylan will be discussing net neutrality. We will look at whether or not the internet should be considered a utility, arguments for and against and offering comparisons with other utilities. There will be a discussion on the economic effects of net neutrality, and what the positive and negative effects net neutrality might have. Zero rating will also be examined, how various countries treat it and whether or not net neutrality is preventing providers from giving more affordable Internet access to those who can’t afford it. Finally, we will discuss Canadian regulators current stance on net neutrality.

In preparation for our presentation, please have a look at the following video before Tuesday’s class:
