Net neutrality offers U.S. a better future

I'm writing on an urgent issue that will affect school, work, businesses and entertainment as we know it. It is imperative that net neutrality rules stay in place (“Net neutrality’s repeal means fast lanes could be coming to the internet. Is that a good thing?” Dec. 13). Voting against net neutrality can negatively impact us all in unimaginable ways.

The Internet has become integral to our daily lives, and it has become an important tool for the advancement of society. The Internet plays a role as a great equalizer. It allows people of all backgrounds to access a wealth of information and knowledge that they might not be able to get otherwise. It allows students to learn better, people to work better and artists to create better.

One of the most important factors here is that the Internet and all websites are easy to access. Net neutrality regulations being taken away will change how we operate as a people for the worse. I hope Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, Sen. Chris Van Hollen and Sen. Benjamin L. Cardin will see that voting in favor of net neutrality means that they are voting for a better future.
