Not having read any of the articles and not having researched the matter
of network neutrality much at all. But wouldn't using either a VPN
service or setting up VPN on one or more virtual servers at strategic
locations of your choice avoid this? Unless "they" try to bandwidth
limit your VPN tunnel(s) indiscriminately. Or did I miss something
At least VPN does a great job of "routing around" GeoIP blocking...
The way I understand it is if you aren't paying for preferred service then your VPN traffic would be at the bottom of the stack on forwarding. So while it gets around GeoIP stuff vpns would be subject to the same quality of service settings as any other traffic that isn't paying for a faster service.
