If the current developments on the internet continue, users will encounter frustrations once Homeland Securities confiscate their computer devices on the pretext of links with terror-related organizations. Behavioral profiling and the unwarranted seizures of digital communication will covert web surveillance to disrupt the work of internet users.

The government has to provide ample time for students and other users of the web to learn extensively about the policy. Negotiations of the government agencies are crucial to the success of internet regulation. Decisions of the internet have a profound effect on web development.

President Obama asserts that internet is an open network since history and will remain so. The president remains committed to providers and the small voices. Net neutrality is one of the basic principles of the internet. It specifies that internet is an open system that treats all the contents with equality together with terms of transmission. Large files and encrypted files take long to transmit while all have the same access to the network. According to Brooke (2011, p. 12), network neutrality implies that users control what one does online and broadband providers should not discriminate on the lawful internet applications. All the phone and cable companies that provide one with access to the internet should route the traffic in a neutral way with no biases in terms of speeding up or slowing down applications. Historically of internet use, people understood it as a crucial part of the internet while current occurrences threaten this principle and place the future of the internet in peril.
