Some of the biggest names in business, including Facebook, Amazon, and Walmart, are weighing in on net neutrality as the Federal Communications Commission reaches its deadline Monday to field comments on its plan to change the way the internet is regulated. Real estate brokers are also having their say; on their behalf, the National Association of REALTORS® is warning the FCC that a change to internet governance could cause unequal access to content such as listing photos and videos.
