Don't understand 'net neutrality'? Let the AIB guys explain it to you

We get it -- "Net neutrality" sounds scary and completely pointless. After all, why should you care as long as you're getting your daily Whatsapp fix? If you still haven't read our explainer, skip it (ok, not really) and see the All India Bakchod Guys break it it down for you.

We get it -- 'net neutrality' sounds scary and completely pointless. After all, why should you care as long as you're getting your daily Whatsapp fix? If you still haven't read our explainer, skip it (ok, not really) and see the All India Bakchod Guys break it it down for you.

In an 8-minute video, the AIB crew tells you why you should care about net neutrality, how it affects you and what you can do to fight for it -- all in AIB's inimitable laugh-out-loud style, of course. Having All India Bakchod talk about net neutrality is especially relevant -- in many ways, the group owes its popularity to its YouTube channel, which has over a million subscribers.

If you haven't got 8 minutes, here's what net neutrality means: on the Internet, all bits are equal. What you do with the data you pay for -- watch a YouTube video, send a WhatsApp message or make a Skype call -- is entirely your prerogative and in an ideal world, your Internet service provider should not prioritise certain kinds of bits over others.

If you don't fancy paying extra for using Whatsapp, Skype or other services, head to savetheinternet.in to learn more. But seriously, watch the video first.
