Internet Service Providers should be allowed to give preference to certain types of content

Internet Service Providers should have to give equal preference to all internet content

Bandwidth Availability

Certain kinds of services use a large amount of bandwidth.  Because these services use more than others, they should be granted different access levels or have to financially contribute more to the system.

Bandwidth Availability

The need for additional bandwidth should be dealt with via expansion.  We need service providers to be constantly expanding the capability of service, rather than working to make existing service better.  Services which require large amounts of bandwidth create demand, which is paid for by the user.

Innovation and Fair Markets

If ISPs are able to give preference to certain types of content, it will lead to innovation.  Certain services can be better distributed based on market requirements, and ISPs will be able to compete to provide the best service to the customer.

Innovation and Fair Markets

Net neutrality is vital to innovation and fair markets.  ISPs, especially in the US, don't have enough competition for competitive capitalism to ensure innovation.  Real innovation comes from online content, and it is vital that we allow content creators equal access to the market. The end of net neutrality could also be the end of small business innovation online.
