Edited general description of issue to restate it in a more neutral way.
'''Network Neutrality''', colloquially also known as '''Net Neutrality''' is an Internet policy issue that considers the degree to which Internet Service Providers can selectively promote certain content and applications to their customers, whether through zero-rating, paid prioritization, or other ways. Some countries have passed Network Neutrality legislation, others have taken a defining goal in “co-regulatory” approach, and others encourage self-regulation within the development of ISP industry. Many countries have yet to respond to the Internet. Simply putissue, and in some countries it is the principle that "all internet traffic should be treated the samea policy question open for review." <ref>ChalmersNew Zealand Ministry for Business, SusanInnovation, and Employment ''[http://www.
