Montana Becomes First State to Implement Net Neutrality
Montana is in the national spotlight due to an issue that impacts most people across the state. According the The Hill, Montana Governor Steve Bullock signed an executive order requiring internet providers with state contracts to abide by net neutrality regulations.
Net Neutrality is a set of regulations prohibiting internet service providers, such as Century Link, Verizon and AT&T, from slowing down or not allowing access to services such as Netflix, YouTube and others. Without Net Neutrality, users might have to pay extra to use these products online. This has become a well-publicized issue, and one that Gov. Bullock obviously thought needed to be addressed due in large part to the number of internet service providers in the state.
