Credit-> @hackergirlofficial - Imagine a world where access to all websites on the internet is blocked except for a few that cater to the interest of a select few individuals. Imagine a world where you're not allowed access to the internet because you don't match the guidelines of someone allowed access. This is a world that is only possible without net neutrality. You can forget about freedom of speech all together. You can expect a globalization regression where the only news you can read are locally approved news, the only online stores you can shop at are ones that paid a pretty penny to be allowed open. The death of Net neutrality will be the death of internet as well know it.
For those that don't know, net neutrality is what allows ISPs to treat all data on the internet equally without discriminating against user, content, website, platform or application. Without net neutrality, your ISP can throttle your connection, block traffic to specific websites and block specific users from accessing the internet.
Interest in mesh networks has been growing since the Federal Communications Commission voted to repeal net neutrality.
Meshnets are a way to decentralize Internet control and put it in the hands of the people, without relying upon major, centralized internet service providers, or ISPs, like Verizon and Comcast to connect.
Meshnet activists are rebuilding the internet from scratch. Here are some existing ones:
Nyc mesh: This network rents data from a local data center (such as in downtown Manhattan) and then uses rooftop antennas (the nodes) to spread internet around. NYC Mesh, is not monitored nor controlled by any ISP.
A big, nation-wide mesh network exists in Spain called Guifi which covers large parts of the country by using long distance wifi connections and community fiber cables.
Will net neutrality prevail? Will meshnets become the new internet? Comment your opinion below.
