Every child uses the internet.

Rather, they are using social media apps, such as Snapchat, Instagram, Twitter,Youtube, etc.

The net neutrality repeal started Dec. 14, 2017. This started because the FCC voted to repeal the net neutrality rules that were preserving an open, fair and competitive internet for all users.

In a New York Times article, Farhad Manjoo, an American journalist said, “The internet had already been dying a slow death, and that the repeal of net neutrality rules only hastens its demise.”

Net neutrality has affected many people around the world. In some places, such as Asia, people have to pay for social media. The prices for different social medias can range from $5 to $10.

Maria Macias, a DMS student, said “The internet should be free for everyone. Taxes are too high to pay for social media.”

Tyler Eades, another DMS student, had similar thoughts.

“If they would have made us pay for social media at least half or close to half of the people wouldn’t pay,” Eades said.

But the question is what will happen next?
