Net Neutrality is how it currently works. Soon your ISP will be slowing


down and blocking content they don’t like and/or don’t pay them enough money. Sites like the one we’re using could go under if Verizon decides fan board traffic could make money if they started it back up on Yahoo. Comcast could do the same to route traffic to NBC Sports. Block sportswar.com or ask for $1 million a month. Absolutely nothing to stop them. In fact, Comcast already manipulates their channel line ups to favor the networks they own on cable. Now it’s coming to your internet.
