Netflix and The Importance Of Net Neutrality

This Hilarious Graph Of Netflix Speeds Shows The Importance Of Net Neutrality
I've personally noticed a dramatic slowdown of Netflix here in Brooklyn over Verizon FiOS and in Massachusetts over Verizon DSL.  This is not an isolated incident, it's corporate policy.

Since Netflix gave in to Comcast's demands for payment in exchange for a promise to deliver movies smoothly over the Internet to Netflix's customers, speeds on Comcast for Netflix users have rocketed …

I still have some hope that Obama will recognize the folly of his new FCC commissioners and overrule the recent proposal for a two-tracked system.
