The Economist puts it best: “The details around network neutrality, the principle that internet-service providers (ISPs) must treat all sorts of web traffic equally, can be mind-numbingly abstruse. But they fuel passion, nonetheless.” A primer already exists in Greenstein, Peitz and Valletti (2016). However, the purpose here is to summarize the discussion and trade-offs in a couple of pages, starting with “what is net neutrality?”.
