So I read the article about the FCC Chairman talking here today, but I didn't see a place/time for his talk. Somebody? Anyway, I'm in favor of net neutrality, but I don't have an issue of the end user paying extra for excess bytes - this network neutrality issue is really a Comcast/Netflix pissing contest - Netflix is using 40% of the network traffic. Give heavy Netflix users a large bill for series binging, and the market will quickly correct itself...

shotsie, you can't say you're in favor of net neutrality but also in favor of charging Netflix users more. Net neutrality is open access. If you allow charging Netflix users for bandwidth then everyone can be charged.
A search for the Media Literacy Project and the Digital Justice Coalition of New Mexico got me this link.
Sorry, I didn't fully explain what I meant by charging more - if you have a cellphone data plan, (say 4 gbytes/month), and you go past the limit, then the carrier is more than happy to allow you to buy another giga or two (or ten). The access for websites is the same - there are no special charges for entertainment providers - but the user would pay for excessive usage by the gigabyte (in some fashion). And the carriers are pretty good at sending text messages concerning excess activity...
Comcast used to degrade the service (on the sly) if the end user exceeded their "usage limit" - but Comcast twisted Netflix's arm until they agreed to pay them off so the Comcast users wouldn't complain. And Netflix is now passing the charge to the end user. No - I'm against that - but I think Comcast should make heavy users pay more for their usage (but tell them first...)
PS - thanks for the link...
