Verizon CEO: “We Will Find Pirates, Throttle Them, and Charge Extra”

From ZeroPaid: Verizon CEO: “We Will Find Pirates, Throttle Them, and Charge Extra”

From the article: “With Comcast’s purchase of NBC Universal last December we are seeing broadband providers merge with content providers, and the transition to digital media distribution. What happens when ISPs decide to throttle competing applications and services or block them altogether.”

While this site tends to be seriously biased and there are obvious grammar and punctuation issues, the core of the article is correct – without Net Neutrality, your Internet provider will easily be able to “favor” its own up-sold products while throttling anything else it wants. It’s like your telephone company deciding who you may call.
