Net Neutrality is important to Eniac, its Founders and the Startup Community Help us take action!

By Nihal Mehta, Founding General Partner

We need your help in saving Net Neutrality. It is the internet’s guiding principle: It preserves the people’s right to communicate freely online. Net Neutrality means an internet that enables and protects free speech, that Internet Service Providers shouldn’t block any applications that use those networks.

Without Net Neutrality, cable and phone companies could carve the internet into fast and slow lanes. An ISP could slow down its competitors’ content or block political opinions it disagreed with. ISPs could charge extra fees to the few content companies that could afford to pay for preferential treatment — relegating everyone else to a slower tier of service. This would destroy the open internet.
