    Net Neutrality concerns IP agnosticism, not the cost to route (DSL) and maintain (hosting) data.

    •  The only reason they care about (0+ / 0-)

      the IP address is because they see it as another way to make more money. Take the ability to squeeze people out of the equation and they won't give a damn about the content provided.

      Bush didn't just drive the country into the ditch. He stole the mirrors, slashed the tires, lit it on fire, then drove it into the ditch.

        Who is this "they" that won't give a damn about the content provided?

          •  Simple solution. The sites that you detest (0+ / 0-)

            so much can easily be avoided.  Don't go to them.  If you don't think their content is worth what they are charging, don't sign up.  I'm not quite sure why you would think that Net Neutrality would change any of that.  You do realize that building and maintaining a web site is far from free don't you?
