Ok. So. Do you know what net neutrality is? Cause it doesn't seem like it. So, here's a quick and dirty refresh:

Net neutrality is simply the concept that all traffic on the internet must be treated equally. This means that, say, Netflix can't come in and say 'Hey we'll pay you to give our data priority on your lines.' and your provider can't say 'Pay us, or your data is going to be slower than Hulu, cause they decided to pay us.' It's a first come, first serve system.

If the current net neutrality laws are overturned, however, you could see a significant uptick in prices where people want traffic prioritized.

This does not mean that websites will be randomly banned. Please, stop asking in different ways every other day.

Does this make sense to you? That's about the best ELI5 I can do. If you want anything lower, you're on your own.

I thought net neutrality also makes it to where ISPs can't ban websites

I and at least 10 others have told you: No. Net neutrality has nothing to do with banning websites. It's about prioritizing traffic, to make sure somebody can't pay to jump in line so to speak. It exists to keep the information in order of first come, first serve.

There's little nuances in there, but this is probably all you will ever personally need to worry about net neutrality.

Why has this been asked 58 times in the last 5 days?

WTF? What's with those weird question about net neutrality? And why do you keep asking the same question, mentioning those same products?

Because I have a website on there and I don't want to keep putting time into it if it's just going to be blocked when we lose net neutrality
