Internet users can find it difficult to keep up on the ever-changing laws, issues, and challenges that affect their media experience. In clear, easy-to-grasp language, this guide explains the basic workings of internet connections, IP addresses, and bandwidth throttling. The status of information control by governments and internet providers is explored in both the United States and an international context. This insightful title makes clear the debate between those who support net neutrality and those who oppose it—a debate that affects every internet user today and in the years to come.
