Would you agree, however, that these last mile bandwidth restrictions
should be _totally content neutral_?
That is, whoever is selling you this last mile bandwidth may limit the
total number of bits per second or per day or per month they send you.
(Preferably telling you in advance what those limits will be, and how
they will be applied.)
But, they should never exercise any discrimination over which particular
bits they send you, or how rapidly they send any particular bits, based
on what the bits contain, where they're going, or where they came from.
(Unless, of course, _you_ have specifically instructed them to block
certain bits or certain sources, e.g. as in spam filters or the like.)
Agreement on this?
