One way to achieve this is through technology by implementing an online business process network as an integral part of your business website.

Since last month 22 states and the District of Columbia have filed a lawsuit seeking to block the FCC's repeal of net neutrality regulations, which impede Internet Service Providers (ISPs) from throttling and charging paid prioritization of web traffic and internet services.
