Net Neutrality Pros and Cons: What It Means for You
Net Neutrality is one of the hottest debates in not only the United States of America, but all over the globe. Almost everyone today is involved in this debate whether they know it or not. With large ISPs pushing for the ability to restrict bandwidths in regards to tiered-internet services, governments getting involved in the debate with possible legislations aimed at net neutrality, and trade agreements like the TTIP or TPP targeting aspects of international data transfer, net neutrality is at the heart of modern business and daily life. Therefore, we decided it would be best to give you some information about it, and explain both sides of the story we call net neutrality.

How are VPNs and Net Neutrality Linked?
We’ve talked many times about the numerous benefits of using an encrypted VPN connection to protect your data from prying eyes. It also supports net neutrality. You have seen that net neutrality provides an equal playing field, ensuring all providers start at the same level. Our VPN serves a similar purpose. We route traffic through various ISPs and servers, meaning that no one ISP carries the burden and everyone get equal access. For example, when T-Mobile offers customers free streaming on selected sites, some of that streaming must necessarily occur over another carrier’s bandwidth to meet demand. Naturally, those other carriers disagree with this practice. Your encrypted ZenMate connection protects against that. From desktop to mobile, ZenMate provides secure Internet access that supports net neutrality, as well as encrypting all of your data.
