“By Dec 31st 2020, fewer than 30% of Americans with home broadband will be on packages that are significantly biased to specified sites (i.e. non-net-neutrality packages - for clarity, we define these as packages that throttle all sites other than a named list to < 10Mbps)”

Critchlow's Argument

I believe that the market will prove to be more competitive than many commentators who are talking about the negative effects of net neutrality believe it is. In particular, I think that mobile broadband and new broadband technologies will provide enough of a meaningful alternative to the local monopoly fixed line providers to keep them somewhat in check and prevent them offering the most abusive kinds of limited internet packages.
