Survey says users are worried about Net Neutrality

Yesterday the results of a survey conducted by Consumer Federation of America, Consumers Union and Free Press were released. “The nationally representative survey found that more than 75 percent of Internet users polled are seriously concerned about not being able to freely choose an Internet service provider or being required to pay twice for certain Internet services. Another[sic] 70 percent were concerned about providers blocking or impairing their access to Internet services or sites, such as Internet telephone service or online retailers like Amazon.com. Fifty-four percent want Congress to take action to ensure that Internet providers are prohibited from engaging in these practices.”

The users instinctively know the true nature of Internet. I feel strongly that ISPs that go against this will feel the wrath of the Invisible Hand.

I would drop my isp and any other bundled service I buy from them faster than they can count to 3 if they try to restrict my access to any content provider of my choice, or if my fees on "other" services I buy(voip phone)go up as a result of their extortion on content or service providers.
