    "I have seen too many VPN providers that offer Christmas VPN deals, but I am confused as most of them are same, but their prices are still too high. I just want a VPN to access few restricted sites and for that why should I pay such huge amount. Finally, I found the cheapest deal of FastestVPN they are offering 92% discount on 5 Year plan cost just $49.95 really an amazing deal to opt"

WHAT'S THE MEANING

Net neutrality is the principle that all Internet communications should be the same. It should not discriminate or charge in a different way based on any kind of metric. Whether it's by user, content, website, platform, application, type of equipment.

DID YOU KNOW?

The FCC voted to abolish the open Internet back on December 14, 2017? The internet has become so much a part of the lives of most of us. It is easy to imagine that it will always remain the free and open medium it is now. While we may have lost an important battle for an open Internet, there is still hope. Navigating the world wide web got a little more complicated and restrictive. There are certain methods to circumvent this though. One of the most popular methods is the use of VPNs or Virtual Private Network.

VPN services have seen a growth in number since this whole situation started. These services ensure that you can access any content or site in the world regardless of where you are. With these, you can open blocked sites online. You can unblock blocked websites that your ISP might have restricted you to access. Another added benefit of these services is that they protect your privacy. Your entire internet activity is not monitored or saved while using their services. There have been a lot of premium services for computers but it has reach mobile devices as well. There are plenty of VPN services for both Android and iOS platform. If you aren't using these services yet, you should start now. Let nothing stop you from enjoying the open Internet and protecting your privacy as well.

    "This app will allow you to use the internet with more security. It allows for one to setup a VPN that prevents things like hacking and tracking. I like the idea of being able to use the web with more security, especially in this day and age where the government and large corporations all horde and sell our private data. If you value your privacy I would certainly recommend checking this app out, it may very well be what you need for your security. "

    "It's a quick and easy way to get around blocked sites. It's not a permanent solution to the problem though. A better solution would be to get a VPN. However, if you are at school or in an office and need to get around some restriction real quick. it's a good solution."
