    JP, you write: “Net neutrality would allow content providers like Netflix, as AEI Visting Fellow Gus Hurwitz explains ‘To pass costs of their services on to ISPs and consumers broadly…with the net effect of harming consumers.'” but you do not explain what kind of costs or why this is a bad thing. Since your entire argument seems to hang on this detail, I think you need to be a little more explicit. And, if you want to abandon net neutrality, then I think you have a responsibility to explain how to prevent the sequester of smaller entities into low-performing channels. Otherwise it seems you are arguing only for no regulation at all, which sounds like a really bad idea.

  2. This article is SO one-sided. All you guys care about is taking away are personal freedoms. Yeah, and you might as well throw out our free speech and amendment rights. What good are those anymore?

    ““net neutrality” really is nothing more than an attempt at rent seeking by content providers” Uh… WTF? You’ve got it completely backwards. Net neutrality protected just those kind of things from happening; obviously you didn’t know about that before typing out this biased dribble.

    “Let market-driven innovation and investment continue” You do realize that the big cable companies can block or slow down other websites? So what innovation are YOU talking about?

    So there ya go. You wanted a pep talk, you got it! Now get those dirty, greedy, lick-fingering, money-driven, corporate hands off of OUR internet. Oh, and tell all your friends at AT&T and Comcast to do the same!
