Dude... So correct. Net neutrality is worth fighting for. Was reading this article on AC last week which told me how the cost of servers is being passed on to us and the carriers are signing deals with the individual websites to provide a faster connect. All in all only the carriers profit because of us paying higher costs as opposed to what we should pay and the agreements providing a large profit to them too.

Agreed. I'd prefer that content providers all get equal, unrestricted access to the pipes, and sell consumers tiered speed access.

This reminds me. For those of you who watch CGPGrey's videos on Youtube, he posted one explaining exactly what net neutrality is all about and the importance of fighting for it.
