I already posted a Wikipedia link to the Network Neutrality page to show that it wasn't anything like what they were saying, because they were referring to the NN laws, not the actual principle of NN, but didn't make that clear.

here is some info
tie the wiki's in with what boon is saying.....its all about WHO benefits the most from the language of law.
Five failed attempts have been made to pass bills in Congress containing some network neutrality provisions. Each of these bills sought to prohibit Internet services providers from using various variable pricing models based upon the user's Quality of Service level. Described as tiered service in the industry and as price discrimination by some economists, typical provisions in the bill state "[Broadband service providers may] only prioritize...based on the type of content, applications, or services and the level of service purchased by the user, without charge for such prioritization".
That is exactly what I said in my first response to this thread, you don't need to explain it again to me in a different way.
note there is no law yet.....that is the essence of the hack attacks.....
false flags will satisfy the lawmakers along with other "security" features.....like bribes.
the outside security contractors will make big(ger) money if they are proven to be "necessary".

Wouldn't they have to monitor your traffic to know you went over? Every ISP I know of monitors your traffic/bandwidth usage. I'm not following you.
Well im limited to 150g a month now by Bellsouth. They sent me a email saying I might go over and get charged extra for going over and they offered some sign up program to monitor how much traffic im using.
Broadband Usage FAQs
Are there any usage limits for my broadband service?
Yes. As of May 2, 2011, AT&T's residential DSL High Speed Internet plans will have a usage allowance of 150 Gigabytes ("GB") per month, and its residential U-verse High Speed Internet plans will have a usage allowance of 250 Gigabytes ("GB") per month. The usage allowance is the amount of data you can send and receive each month.
Why is AT&T implementing a usage allowance?
AT&T has experienced a dramatic increase in the amount of data that is sent and received over its wireline broadband networks. This dramatic increase is driven primarily by a small fraction of our customers. In fact, the top 2% of customers use about 20% of the total capacity on our network. A single high traffic user can utilize the same amount of data capacity as 19 typical households. Lopsided usage patterns can cause congestion at certain points in the network, which can slow Internet speeds and interfere with other customers' access to and use of the network.
How will AT&T help me to monitor my usage?
AT&T will provide a website with two options to assist customers in managing their High Speed Internet usage.
First, AT&T will provide a personal usage report at www.att.com/internet-usage. Customers can click on "View my usage" where they can view their actual usage in a given month from the January 2011 bill cycle to the most recent billing cycle. To protect confidential customer information, this site is password-protected. The login process requires your Internet access login and password. The login is your AT&T primary account email address (e.g., John_smith@att.net). The password is the same password used to access your att.net homepage and primary email account.
AT&T initially will report usage data on a weekly basis. When a customer uses 70% of their monthly usage allowance, we will supplement their personal usage report on a daily basis. A customer's usage will be posted on the website within 1 - 4 days after it is collected.
Second, AT&T will provide a website with examples of what kind of Internet activity can impact your actual usage. In addition, on the same site AT&T will provide a usage calculator, which will enable customers to input data about how they typically use their Service and calculate an estimate of how much data they are likely to use in a given month. This website will be available in late April 2011.
I can't seem to access the usage tool. What should I do?
Many of our customers have access to this tool already. For those who don't today, until you're able to log in and view your usage on www.att.com/internet-usage, you should not be concerned about your usage patterns for billing purposes. Once the tool is available, you will be notified if you exceed your allowance.
HAHAHA...what kind of lame ass ISP are you using. That is beyond ridiculous. You should be able to log into your account on their website and see exactly how much you've used. You should NEVER need to install ISP software on your computer.
They want me to download software and sign up for me to monitor how much traffic I use so I don't go over and get charged extra.
