Net Neutrality Can Only Be Ensured Through Government Protection

The Federal Government has historical precedence of intervention when equal access to services is threatened. Vital to a democracy is the protection of the rights of marginalized and smaller groups. This includes the internet. This is not a question of the FCC governing the internet, but rather one of prevent a handful of corporations from access to it. Net neutrality ensures that every site has an equal voice and that every user has uninhibited access to the internet. Anything less is tantamount to censorship. A handful of ISPs form an oligopoly on internet service. This cannot be allowed because the internet is principal means of communication.
