ISPs were thinking far ahead while charging these hoggers for their content. As other sites get on with equal amounts of content being consumed on a daily basis EG: Something as popular or more popular than Netflix is bound to emerge... It just makes more sense for the ISPs to prefer people use their own content. Why shouldn't Netflix pay more?
The ISPs can only build up their infrastructure so fast. Look at Google. Despite how amazing it is that they can produce fiber internet, they are only in five cities!
A fundamental problem with the Pro neuters agenda is the notion that ISPs will start charging people for how much content they use. While this is technically accurate. It has nothing to do with the data/bandwidth/your pocket. It's billion dollar companies fighting with each other. Nowhere near the personal level.

Seriously, what is with people and their paranoia of govt? But they happily hand their data over to big companies all the time (who then turn around and give it straight to the govt, but that's a different thread)
At least with govt, we can elect different people who can then appoint different FCC regulators. With big business, very few of us have any real choice in our ISP providers.
And please let me know if your phones - regulated under the same provision - are set so you can't complain about the govt over them....
One of you will end up here next!
