Re: Data discrimination from those who don't like economic discrimination
Although I am sympathetic to the cause of Net Neutrality, what I am more concerned about are the choices of internet access. Being one of the earlier adapters of DSL, I've been paying double the price for 1/4 download speed now comparing with the speed over a decade ago. With my only other internet access option being Comcast, there isn't really any option around. If there were choices and some ISPs decide to provide inferior services regarding Net Neutrality, they would not be in business and other newer and better ISPs would take their place.
In Europe, this scenario is possible simply because the "last mile" of internet access are built as part of public infrastruture, where ISPs compete and provide superior services to customers. In US, companies like AT&T and Comcast are replied upon to provide the infrastructures and have little incentives to allow competitions like Google Fiber, while racking up record profits with localized monoplies. Not maintaining an absolute Net Neutrality in Europe might be a concern for the purists, but as long as the infrastruture stays public and the ISP competitions stay fierce, there is not much for European citizens to worry.
