It is not about youtube videos. What does it cost Verizon to send you youtube video vs. a bunch of other stuff of the same size? nothing.
IT IS ABOUT VOIP.
Voice over IP is destroying a FAT CAT'S BUSINESS. Fat cats, Verizon one of them, are OVERCHARGING arm and leg for phone access. Cost of land phone lines are insane. And if you consider business lines, any even small business has a bunch, end they are minimum $50/month a pop, and some have 5-10 lines. It is fat cat's money printing machine. And VOIP is killing them, because if you get a VOIP trunk, you can have something like up to 23 lines on one VOIP connection. CAN YOU COUNT? That's $30/month vs. $500 to fat cat.
The VOIP revolution is here, fat cats know this. "Net neutrality" bull#*$! is not about youtube, it is about destroying cheap VOIP providers. It is about not letting small businesses off the hook on overpriced fat cat service.
