The relationship between net neutrality and the Wikimedia Foundation has been described as “complicated” – see . Considering the that the Wikimedia Foundation has a zero-rating program of its own (see ), I’m not exactly sure how much this would affect Wikimedia, whether positively or negatively. On the one hand, we could take advantage of the change by expanding Wikipedia Zero into the United States. On the other hand, that’s probably not a good idea because the program is designed to promote access to free knowledge in developing countries, where access to the Internet may be prohibitively expensive. In a developed country such as the United States, that’s not really a prioritized issue.
