    Imagine if an independent website was created and started truly competing with Youtube. Now, Google drops big bucks with all of the internet providers to give Youtube more bandwidth access than the competition....

    Edit: Not hating on Google here, just an example.

    Verizon and google has been pushing real hard for this. Their network cabal is all about a two tier effort to control the internet. One internet for those paying the fees they want, and the rest of us, consumed with ads, tracking and malware like from the days of GeoCities... simply because we won't buy into their extortion.

    So even though you're paying $60 a month for 250GB of high speed home internet, if you want to watch NetFlix's, that will be extra. If you want to use Hulu that will be extra. If you want to download a movie from Amazon, that will be extra. If you want to use Skype. that will be extra. and on and on....

    It isn't as much about blocking sites as much as giving bandwidth priority to certain ones.

    This whole issue on net neutrality started over ISP's threatening to block NetFlix IP's unless they paid money to the ISP's. It was as close to extortion as you can get.

    ^Number 10 totally needs to happen. And if not that then <jump to slide 11> Republicans need to get out of the way and let the FCC do what needs to be done.
