If you buy a monthly allocation of 250GB of home internet, for $60-$70 a month, you should be able to legally use it for whatever you want. That's net neutrality. For an ISP to add additional charges for streaming Movies, MP3's...etc.. within your 250GB of allotted internet is just cost gouging.

I'm surprised there isn't more outrage about this. Is net neutrality just not a big deal when it comes to wireless devices? Because I, like millions of others, use a multitude of web based services. The internet went after SOPA and PIPA with a rage, yet hardly a peep is made about Verizon. In fact, this isn't Verizon's first stab at killing net neutrality. Google and Verizon tried two years ago. And while AT&T doesn't have much to do with the bill, they certainly don't disagree either."Engineering is more than just the number of megapixels." - Stephen Elop

There will be outrage if they eliminate net neutrality for home based ISP's. People will realize it's price gouging because they are already paying $60-$70 for internet access.

Actions like this is why I avoid anything Verizon. They tried to charge me for calls I never made when I had a landline with them many years ago. They took me to court and never provided the requested documentation about the calls. They ended up settling the case because I filed a counter suit for those charges and undisclosed charges (mostly legal fees and lost wages as punitive charges).
It was over $200 in long distance charges for calls I never made to Croatia, especially when I put a total block for long distance and any codes to give access to long distance companies.
Maybe off topic, but just to let people know how awful Verizon has been to me.
