This is absolutely retarded.
LOL, you say that as if Net Neutrality is a bad thing.
So you think it would be better that Shaw be allowed to deliver the same service as NetFlix but penalize those user that find NetFlix to be cheaper and better than their own service?
So you think when Shaw does this and they don't get the subscribers they are seeking because users prefer NetFlix that they won't do something to "compete" and try to attract them like lower the price or increase their content?
Net Neutrality, in this case, helps to creates the level playing field that the cable and telco companies are constantly whining about wanting.

Caps are the ISP's ultimate work around for Net Neutrality.
Net Neutral has no power without the capacity for video and voice competition.
But ISP's are deathly afraid of real competition which would immediately turn them into dumb pipes.
Great for the Monopoly / Duopoly companies, bad for any competitors, and even worse for the consumer.
