Net neutrality is the concept that the Internet is a resource and a utility, and not something that can be priced arbitrarily. The Internet is a big place and companies like Verizon and Comcast want to take you off the Internet if you don't pay the ransom to the cable providers, which is a consequence of no net neutrality. The technical name for the type of utility that the Internet fell under during the Obama administration is "title 2." This means that you cannot raise the price for one type of product or slow down something because the product maker was not paying you. Ajit Pai wants to kill net neutrality and the world is watching and will not let him do it. (If he does there will be great resistance.) There is great opposition to killing Net Neutrality and it will grow if the FCC approves the rule change.
