Net neutrality a hot topic on Capitol City Sunday

Posted:
Madison (WXOW) - There's a new proposal on the future of net neutrality and some say it could have a big impact on everyone who surfs the web or uses it for business.

The FCC proposes a system in which large Internet service providers, like cable companies, can provide a "fast lane" for companies that want to pay more to deliver their content more quickly. "Eventually, it would come around and be built into the price for that service, so it is a consumer issue as well," says Barry Orton, a UW telecommunications expert.

The head of a small Internet service provider says he fears such a plan could negatively impact his business.

Greg Neumann will cover that topic and more this Sunday on Capitol City Sunday at 9 a.m. on WXOW.
