10. So I read it, and maybe I am dense
But what I got out of it is that there are now priorities in internet traffic, from real time voice, to email, etc., etc.

But what Verizon, Google, and now AT&T are advocating is individual sites gaining a "high-speed lane" on the internet by paying to have their content provided on said lane, while the rest of the internet, namely those without bundles of corporate money, would be relegated to the slow lane. Nobody has said anything about being like cable tv, where you would have to pay verizon in order to be served to their end users. But that would be the next step.
