ISP's potentially engaging in access tiering -- is this a legitimate concern or not?
Because it's an empty threat that won't be executed, it's not a concern? So, the proposed network neutrality legislation is not needed?
Or it is not a concern because an ISP should be allowed to give primary access to sites that pay them and hamper, restrict, or deny access to the sites that don't? So, the proposed network neutrality legislation is wrongheaded?
