Description

(The resolution is that the goal should be to reinstate net neutrality for everyone with internet access. Pro will be arguing for this and Con is free to counter this, however they choose. But BOP is shared.)

Voter/Framework:
Voters should weigh the qualitative impacts of the constructive arguments against that of the other constructive arguments, as if scaling the tally points to see which measures greater. Rebuttals (unless connected to a constructive) will serve as a mitigator, to ultimately nullify the strength of an opponent's argument rather than as a point for one's own side.

(Voters do not have to abide by this criteria ^, as I expect all the veterans to have developed their own independent methods for judging debates by now, but if you're new. Keep that in mind.)

Definitions:
Net Neutrality- The concept of an open, equal internet for everyone, regardless of device, application or platform used and content consumed.

Internet Service Provider (ISP)- A company that provides Internet access to its customers.

Rules:
1. BOP is shared.

2. Kritiks are the loss of a conduct point.

3. The definitions in this debate are not absolutes. They are basic terms to provide an expectation of what is being argued. Other versions of the definitions used by different dictionaries also apply, but only under the condition that it is within the scope of the subject.

Is RM even affected by losses or wins?

This happened with our previous debate he conceded, that I won and both our ratings were unaffected.
What is this glitch?

Con conceded.

"So, if being capitalist and business-oriented were a priority to Pro, Pro would actually support NN. "

I meant abolishing NN, that was stupid of me

Challenge me and I'll accept.
