Net Neutrality Results – 7% loss in page views.

by 20, 2017

Net neutrality lost last week, as expected, and so did this  blog.  See previous post here.  Although unscientific, for the two days I had the WordPress “net slow down” simulation plugin enabled, there was roughly a 7% drop in page views compared to the two days before and the two days after.  I strongly suspect that page views would’ve dropped even further if I had kept the “slow down” simulation active for more days.

If you’re a blogger or a reader that wants to keep the internet alive with different and varied content, the battle for net neutrality continues.  The alternative to a neutral internet is to make the internet a place where you pay to see even more advertisements and limited content that someone else decides is what you like.
