Net Neutrality in a nutshell:

For people: NN is good

For corrupt greedy billionaire corporations: bad, since now they need to do their jobs.

Why would anyone want to hurt themselves and make the ISP's rip you off even more? Heck this negatively affects the Congressmen who voted for this as well, but they're old buttwipes who don't use any of "dem crazy new technolomagies"
The purpose of net nutrality is to give the FCC a better foot hold on regulating the internet. The government wants to be the gatekeeper. Internet users should be against this completely. If the government was actually interested in doing what it is claiming, they could handle this under anti-trust laws rather than expanding internet regulations.

In a nutshell - Net Neutrality means that you have the freedom to view whatever web pages you want, to use whatever online services you want - without your ISP engaging in anti-competitive measures. For instance, say if your ISP wants you to use HotMail and has a special deal cut with MS for it, they could throttle or block your access to GMail, if they didn't have Net Neutrality. They could block all kinds of things, based on special deals, kickbacks and payola, or simply force you to use only what they want you to use.

Net Neutrality means that you have the freedom to engage in whatever you want, and that all ISPs have to provide it on an even, fair basis. This does not mean you can engage in illegal activities - but does mean that you can enjoy all of those things that are entirely legal. Without it, it is all about being proprietary, using only what they want you to use, and having all of your services put into jail. It could even be so extreme that the ISP would force you into a certain web browser, like IE only - and you would be throttled or banned if you use FireFox or whatever.

This is a good thing. Have you actually seen the guidelines? They actually do allow gatekeepers and bandwidth discrimination, using sneaky wording.

As for the article itself, dont get me started on Al Franken and his views on government oversight. Its just one more thing they can get their hands on and control.
Telling ISPs they can't restrict your bandwidth or block websites out of business interest isn't giving more power to the Government. The Government can't go ahead and order ISPs to give whitehouse.gov more bandwidth than the rest of the internet. Net Neutrality assures equal access to the internet for everyone, and it should be a priority.

For the record...net neutrality DOES NOT prevent bandwidth caps. This is a strawman argument that comes up almost every time net neutrality is discussed, and someone will probably make the claim here as well.. ISPs are well within their rights to throttle or restrict excessive users. What it does prevent is your ISP telling you that you must use only their preferred email, video stream, voip program, etc. It also prevents ISPs charging even more at both ends of the connection. With no net neutrality, ISPs can charge web hosts more to ensure a smooth connection between the hosts and the end-users of the service. The ISP can then also turn around and charge the end user more for a "package" that allows access to that particular host.

In short, net neutrality is NOT about taking rights away from ISPs. It is about protecting businesses and consumers from excessive price gouging, and maintaining a level playing field for everyone.
