Yeahbut, for the last mile that network is often a monopoly or maybe a 
duopoly if you're lucky. If streaming provider 1 pays ISP to give 
priority over streaming provider 2 -- maybe by severely rate limiting 
provider 2 -- the people who get screwed are end users without a way to 
vote with their feet. That sort of monopolistic behavior is bad for end 
users. Mostly I want ISP's to be dumb bit providers and stay out of 
shady deals that enrich ISP's at my expense. And if it takes regulation 
to do that, bring it.
