Net Neutrality 101: Why An Open Internet is Important

Austin Thu, Jun 28, 2018, 6:30 PM (CDT)

About this event

We've all read that FCC net neutrality regulations have been rolled back, but what does that mean? While net neutrality is a term much employed in debates about digital freedom, many only vaguely understand its meaning and implications. EFF-Austin President Kevin Welch will present an overview - explaining what net neutrality means in practical terms, why a free and open Internet is important, and how rolling back the regulations might affect users in general and nonprofits in particular.

Note venue change! For June 28 only we'll be meeting at the Terrazas Branch of the Austin Public Library, 1105 E. Cesar Chavez Street.
