How will the elimination of Net Neutrality affect survey sites world-wide?

I don't really see that it would.

For starters, I don't think there is survey companies world wide.

You may be thinking of Net Neutrality in a different way.

In other words, I think it is primarily designated toward major corporations, companies that try to offer services
only to a certain sector.

Remember what AoL tried to do in the 90's? You were locked into a portal you thought was the internet, but was only actually a tiny part of the internet, and nobody realised they were missing all the good stuff.

Net neutrality laws were designed to stop someone doing that - only better. In AoL you weren't actually *locked* in, it was just tricky to get out.

So, massively - it's now perfectly legal for ISPs to close or charge an additional subscription to the parts of the internet they don't own. History says this is incredibly likely to happen. Most likely, you'll get a phone/TV/part-of-the-internet-we-own package from your ISP, and an additional fee to access the real internet.

Yep, AOL is a good example.

Here comes the confusing part:

I think that is backwards...

AOL was, in part, the reason for Net Neutrality... That is correct.


Net Neutrality = Good


Beleive it or not, the government (Net Neutrality) restricts the ISP's/Broadband providers from doing just that...

You have to wonder why the FCC is working extremely hard to get rid of NN...



As for the OP, Net Neutrality will have very little effect on survey sites world-wide.

I would be more concerned about the "Personal Data Protection Act".

Your internet service provider could choose to block access to Clixsense.

The internet would be just like Cable, with your provider choosing what content you can access.

Edit: A good example of what it could lead to is currently going on between the Amazon and Google rivalry.

Google has decided to block all access to Youtube from Amazon Firestick devices:

Curently in the US, Comcast and AT&T are not just ISPs, but Massive Entertainment Conglomerates.

Either could choose to make any of their services or susidiarys exclusive to "their internet" and block any competitor.
