Policy makers are grappling with net neutrality for the fourth time in a decade. Today Dropbox is participating in a Day of Action with other tech companies and privacy groups to bring attention to the importance of net neutrality policies and defend internet freedom. On this Day of Action, we want to state clearly where Dropbox stands: we strongly favor a free and open internet with fair rules that promote competition, choice, and innovation. We’ve shared this position before and it’s worth repeating.
Net neutrality ensures that all web traffic must be treated equally. This means that ISPs can’t block or slow down data from unaffiliated websites and apps, nor can they give preference to traffic from companies that pay extra.
