网络中立性的主要原则是网络提供者应遵循非歧视原则。信息应具有中立性，信息应从一个地区流向另一个地区。网络中立性是指每个互联网用户都应该能够有效地访问信息提供者或内容提供者，而不会对信息的优先级产生任何干扰或阻塞互联网上的信息。互联网服务提供商创建了快速通道，这是所需带宽所必需的。这种带宽是访问某些特定网站所必需的。康卡斯特(Comcast)和威瑞森(Verizon)等公司提供快速通道时，会收取额外费用。Verizon对无线服务有具体的互联网计划，Comcast对有线服务也有具体的计划。这一互联网提供系统被认为是非常有利可图的互联网服务提供商。这是因为他们阻止的技术已经存在。然而，它们显示出了与当前网络中立体系的倒退。学者们发现了重要的例子，互联网服务提供商阻止了“点对点文件共享服务”(McChesney, 2013, p. 41)。
The main principle of Net Neutrality suggests that the rule of non-discrimination should be followed by the Internet providers. The information should be provided with neutrality and information should flow from one locale to another. Network neutrality states that every Internet user should be effectively able to access the information providers or the content providers without creating any kind of interference in prioritization of the information or blocking information on Internet. The Internet service providers have created the fast lanes, which are required for the required bandwidth. This bandwidth is required to access some specific websites. For providing fast lanes, the companies like Comcast and Verizon have additional fees. Verizon has their specific Internet plans for the wireless service and Comcast have specific plans for their cable service. This system of Internet providing is considered to be very lucrative for the Internet service providers. It is because the technology which they block already exists. Yet, they display the step backward from the current system of net neutrality. The scholars have found significant examples, where the Internet service providers block the“peer-to-peer file sharing services” (McChesney, 2013, p. 41).
It has also been found that wireless and wired Internet providing services are not separately monopolistic, but they often work like a cartel (Zittrain, 2008). Both kinds of services have a secret agreement where the wired services offer their claims for the wireless services, if they stand in completion with wired service. This could be understood by the service advertising agreement between Comcast and Verizon. They do not compete with each other in order to maintain their monopoly over the market. Both the companies also continue to stay in collaboration in the year 2012. Verizon also purchased the wireless spectrum from the various cable companies, so that it can increase its reach. According to the Crawford (2013), the most reliable and significant way to promote faster, reliable, cheaper Internet access for the users, would be that government should work towards subsidizing the municipal FTTH. Thus, it would be correct that Internet is turned into public utility by the government. This would be able to bring back the concept of Net Neutrality. Without the interference of the Government, it is impossible to gain complete Net Neutrality.
