Net Neutrality is one of the many divisive issues of American politics.
The current Internet infrastructure does not pay attention to the content of the data it carries, allowing the potential for important, time critical data (like video) to be delayed in favor of less time-sensitive data (like email.) A new infrastructure would make possible this "packet prioritization" and potentially lead to performance improvements for all users. But some fear that Internet service providers would preferentially carry the data of large businesses, reducing Internet quality for regular users. Supporters of Net Neutrality want all data to be treated equally. Opponents feel the benefits of packet prioritization outweigh any potential risks.
