From MSNBC ...
.Unfortunately, the biggest Internet service providers have a different vision for the Internet. Companies like AT&T, Comcast and Verizon hate Net Neutrality. They want to pick and choose what content you can watch based on who pays them the most. They want to be gatekeepers collecting tolls before the best new ideas and apps can reach you. [Editor’s note: msnbc.com is owned by Comcast.]
Until recently, it looked like these companies and their armadas of lobbyists were winning. Numerous press reports revealed the FCC’s latest “open Internet rules” would condone a pay-for-prioritization Internet, where service providers could charge extra fees to content companies for preferential treatment. That is the opposite of Net Neutrality.
