Slow Comcast speeds were costing Netflix customers - Aug. 29, 2014
The inside story of how Netflix came to pay Comcast for internet traffic – Quartz
Net Neutrality is a great piece of legislation - especially for conservatives - because it promotes freedom, while requiring almost no oversight. Businesses and end users would be the regulators. Oh, your connection to www.debatepolitics.com has been getting throttled? Sue the **** out of your ISP. That would be your right.
Otherwise, without Net Neutrality, I don't think you'd see many changes immediately. I, personally, believe the ILECs fought this hard to beat Net Neutrality as a safety net. One of their biggest income sources has always been TV service, and more and more end users are moving away of that in favor of streaming. Streaming can be cheaper, and while sometimes inconvenient, the end user gets to really control what content he/she is paying for. And that's what it comes down to:
Ownership of who gets your entertainment dollar. The ILECs want to make sure that they aren't just providing your data services.
