Leap of net neutrality from "carriers shall not charge some content more" to "poor people shall not get free partial Internet" = astounding

With all due respect to Andreessen, there's very little difference between "charging some content more" and "offering some content free". Whether people who get it are poor or rich.

Now, whether the benefits outweigh the issues in this case is disputable. But the leap is not astounding, and it is in fact not a leap.
