Preferred access for those who can afford it is most of the time the rule and not the exception.
Some examples are, if you pay more then you can get:
- First class flights
- Better medical treatment
- Better/healthier food
- Faster lane in the highway
- More bandwidth for your existing internet connection
So I would like to understand why would we want to make internet speed an exception?
I personally don't like the fast lane approach but I don't find the arguments against it logically sound.
I want to understand why suddenly everyone goes crazy about this one commodity while there's not the same kind of noise regarding for example "road neutrality" (roads should not discriminate types of vehicles).
Not all bits are made equal, I think many would agree that they would want emergency services to have priority access over porn streaming sites for example.
