    I get traffic & visitors from amazon, google, youtube. I'd think everyone will still want to be on these websites, buying products, filling their needs. But maybe I'm missing something here?

    If you have to pay to get to these websites from net neutrality, will large companies like comcast be able to control the google websites and drive new websites out of the search results?

    Don't worry, because we are too far from a 'United World' under 'Dictatorship'!

    I don't think it will a real big effect on the average user but for companies that try running with the big boys and depend like traders the little guy I think is going to get squeezed.

    It seems that at the moment, Internet providers are focused on cornering the market on video streaming (movies, TV shows) for ad money. After that, they'll go after other revenue streams which could include e-commerce commissions. So start looking for a 9-5.

    Netflix and Google are making a grassroot campaign against the proposition. I don't think it will slide but I'm staying up to date on it. From my understanding it means the internet will be a highway with "tolls" basically for faster speeds and such. Not good. It's a way for the big dogs like Comcast/ Verizon / etc to make more money and to stop competition from starting. So these big tele communication companies are trying to pay for their security to not have to deal with competition or innovation from small start up companies.
