Net neutrality simplified

Here is a great article about the net neutrality debate told with simple analogies, making it easy to comprehend.

Imagine this: you pick up the phone and call Vito’s, the excellent pizza joint down the road where your family’s gotten its favourite pepperoni and mushroom every Friday night for years. The phone rings once, twice, then: "AT&T: The number you have called is not engaged, but the recipient has not paid for premium service. Please hold for 30 seconds, or press ‘one’ to be connected to Domino’s immediately."
