I don't want to get off on a rant here, but....

Net Neutrality is not something the founders of the Internet take lightly

Tim Berners Lee sums up Net Neutrality:
"Net Neutrality says: "If I pay to connect to the Net with a certain quality of service, and you pay to connect with that or greater quality of service, then we can communicate at that level."

That's all. Its up to the ISPs to make sure they interoperate so that that happens.

Net Neutrality is NOT asking for the internet for free.
Net Neutrality is NOT saying that one shouldn't pay more money for high quality of service.   We always have, and we always will."

Written in 2006, unfortunately it's now 2009 and the telcos are still trying to confuse the common consumer into thinking Net Neutrality is Google trying to trick consumers into paying for Google's internet bill.
