The truth hurts especially when it is plainly explained. Then again their still in denial.

I'm not sure what he is alluding to about net neutrality but if he is saying that's a bad thing I'll have to say I disagree at least where it concerns content providers. At the present the net is neutral where content providers like myself are concerned. It certainly hasn't caused any issues with people being censored. That has many issues involved with it and if not enforced could actually allow larger media conglomerates to run over smaller ones. As it is now your ISP gives no preferential treatment to different websites. The only limiting factor is how fast the my server is and connection speed I'm paying for. Without it being neutral the ISP could for example offer higher bandwidth to a larger media companies squeezing out the little guys like me as as the internet becomes more media intense.

For example Comcast gives no special treatment to different VOIP providers EXCEPT for their own service. Now imagine them doing that with their own content services. e.g if you want to get video from my site it takes forever to download or you can use their service and get fantastic speeds... You'll end up with what you have on Cable now with limited and very expensive programming.

I don't know how they could pull it off, but they are talking about it. I've heard about net monitoring on several talk shows.

Technologically speaking no issue ... I can do it myself for the users on this server. Comcast to a degree is doing it already on the consumer end but I have no issue with that. You can buy differently tiered plans and that is most definitely something a company should be able to offer. As long as the providers n the other end of the connection receive no special treatment everyone can remain on a nice even playing field.
