Foxes angry about dropping favorable henhouse rules?
Keep in mind that with the ISPs being held to a high standard, and Google through Facebitch being given free reign to violate our privacy, that MAYBE this is one of those situations where those living in glass houses are the first to throw stones...
Net Neutrality has _NEVER_ been about protecting the little guy. it's about protecting the existing "fiefdoms", and the fief-holders are FURIOUS that their stake is now threatened.
Personally, I'd _LOVE_ to see paid prioritazation, so long as its limited to only a percentage of traffic (let' say 30%). Let the 'Netflix' providers pay a little extra to get their packets to your computer a bit faster than the spammers, torrents, and "all those ads" embedded in _EVERYTHING_ [along with the monolithic+inflated script libraries that run client-side]. Why not? Same with streaming TV [that might put cable and satellite TV "on notice"], and other services that have high bandwidth requirements.
In any case, 'Net Neutrality' seeks to STOP that. That way, we can ALL be in the same "ghetto".
Already, Microshaft is "stealing bandwidth" by using torrent-like file sharing amongst Win-10-nic machines, to spread their mandatory updates to the world. if ISPs decided to THROTTLE THAT, Microshaft is gonna be REALLY ANGRY, aren't they? Well, they shouldn't be STEALING the bandwidth in the FIRST place, I say!!!
Because they call it 'Net Neutrality', it has an emotional effect on people that are unfamiliar with it. Then these "feelers" will ARGUE their FEELINGS with everyone else, not really knowing what's going on.
And, companies like Google, Facebitch, Microsoft, etc. are CAPITALIZING on the number of people who've been _conditioned_ into FEELING instead of THINKING, over this issue that benefits THEM more than US in it's 2015 configuration.
