California's landmark law that allows net neutrality … finally has the green light to go into effect. That's what a federal judge ruled yesterday. What this means for YOU when you go online is this: your internet provider can NOT pick and choose which services to slow down or put caps on – think of all those shows and movies you stream! Also, your provider CANNOT make certain websites go faster just because they have a business partnership with them.
