The principle of Net Neutrality holds that all Internet traffic should be treated equally.

Yesterday, the Federal Communications Commission, FCC, voted to approve a controversial plan to repeal net neutrality protections in the United States.

But Technology Minister Dr. Andrew Wheatley has urged telecommunications companies operating here in Jamaica, to embrace net neutrality despite the US decision.

Mr. Pryce says Flow is yet to make a decision on what it will do going forward.
