Any why the desire for extra regulation for Internet services?

Shippers (you know, actual Common Carriers) do things like this all the
time, especially when they are busy (congested).  I had a package ship
Tuesday; it sat at the receiving location for 24 hours before the first
move, then it reached my city early this morning, but since I didn't pay
extra for timed delivery (and the shipper doesn't have special
arrangements), it didn't go on a truck today.  I should get it tomorrow.

I could have paid more to get it faster, and some large-scale shippers
have special arrangements that seem to get their packages priority.  How
is this different from Internet traffic?
