These daily, instinctive Internet actions are available to all of us anytime, free of charge, in what is known as net neutrality–the concept that Internet providers can’t discriminate between different types of content, such as movies and video.But this level playing field may soon be changing. Network giants, such as telephone and cable companies, are rallying to institute a “tiered” Internet, where broadband providers could offer speedier service and smoother access to those consumers who agree to pay a premium price for it.Think of the Internet as a highway with toll booths.
