If I can afford to pay for Comcast business class internet because I like a fast and wide broadband I should be able to do that. If someone can't
afford it then that is their hard luck. It's not cheap, fast Internet they want, it's Free internet they want because it a form of control.
If someone can't afford something-that is not my fault nor am I responsible for providing them with what they can't afford.
You are missing the point entirely. It isn't about you being able to pay for more/faster bandwith. It's about mega sites like Amazon, Google, etc
paying for PREFERENCE over all other sites in being delivered to you.
An Example: ATS will not be able to pay for prefered rates that Big Box will and will become slow and difficult to get to.
You get it - those site that can pay will be the only ones that work well - all others will get what's left over after advertisers get their
Here's an anology - Postal Service, Trucking Service - both considered common carriers (as the net should be) - they are not legally able to charge
you different rates for 'carrying' an item based on the items worth. A letter that contains a check for a million dollars can be mailed for the same
rate as a letter with a check for $1.00. A ton of trash costs the same as a ton of gold to ship (might want more insurance on the later).
