The justification for your position against net neutrality is flawed, for the primary reason that broadband providers are generally a monopoly in Utah communities. This is the case where I live, CenturyLink notwithstanding as they do not have a competitive offering.
This makes the monopoly a common carrier first and a content provider second, at least from the perspective of a consumer. Without net neutrality Comcast will be free to throttle Netflix in favor of Xfinity offerings, which gives Comcast an unfair advantage. This issue disappears in communities where there is competition; with the added advantage of significantly lower subscription rates — specifically due to that competition.
Further, I definitely do not want my common carrier censoring content unless that censoring is an option within my individual control.
