I can understand both the side taken by Comcast, and the side of the content provider, but I don't think it's as simple as the slogans spewed out regarding "Net Neutrality", which has become so misused and abused as a term that I don't think it has any credulous value remaining.

Is Level3 the content provider though? Or did Comcast just decide they
don't want to do the settlement free peering thing anymore for traffic
transiting via Level 3?
