What I always wonder about in this discussion is why nobody considers Google, Microsoft, and Facebook "big business". They were the main pushers of the Obama ruling. What was their agenda?
Also, I highly doubt that any ISP is going to start doing what people are claiming. It seems that only east coast centered ISP's considered it and I am willing to bet they had their feet firmly planted on both sides of the fence.

There won't be a monopoly because others can fund their own ISP if there is a need for it like every other country without net neutrality. Why r people panicking over nothing.

Technology may be their undoing. Someone may come up with something to bypass the net completely. Maybe something like a big wifi network that goes house to house, building to building, that doesn't use the present internet. Every time the elites have tried to squash technology, something new comes up to go around it. This will probably be no different.
