So in your alternate universe, the [content] providers "buy out" our caps on their own dime? Isn't it conceivable to you that they might in turn have to recover these costs from us? What I'd be afraid of is having to pay for my bandwidth twice.
Of course they're recovering it from us.
But I'd rather see Netflix charge me an extra $5 on my subscription, to guarantee performance via my local ISP, than have my local ISP told by the FCC to provide "neutral" connections, which will perform equally poorly for all concerned.
Why should YOU pay extra for MY bandwidth?
