In practice, they'll charge higher fees for faster delivery of content from websites such as Netflix - because video requires more bandwidth - and that cost will be passed along to the customer. Or ISPs can choose winners and losers on a whim: Verizon, for example, would favor Yahoo (which it owns) over Google, and subject Google to a toll hike to drive in the fast lane. Quotes-end.png
