30 Years On, I think that “Postliberal” sums it up best
I did, a bit. It seemed less cut and dried than the various partisans claimed, and I wound up busy with other things.Our bulk traffic is over dedicated lines, but I expect this will make our other network activity slower, and maybe more expensive. My personal internet access is via a local low-bid subcontractor to the phone company, so I don't expect improvements.
As I understand it, support Net Neutrality is generated from creating a backwards view of the Internt by conflating how traditional radio and tv work to convince people that streaming services are pushing out information when the load is being generated by requests to them from consumers. The big beneficiaries of so-called NN are not pay-per-view or subscription services. They could just pass the cost for premium service to their subscribers so it's a wash. The big winners would be, surprise, giants like Google (YouTube) and Facebook that depend on generating traffic to justify their advertising rates and therefore don't want any obstacles to discourage people from clicking on the latest viral video.
I've read that this just gets us back to status quo ante--2015.
If they called it "Net Banana," no one on either side of the aisle would have a single clue whether he was for it or against it.
