What Net Neutrality Isn’t

The Globe and Mail reports on plans by major Canadian ISPs such as Bell Canada and Telus to move away from unlimited usage plans toward pricing based on bandwidth used.  The article suggests that net neutrality stands in the way, though I don't think that's true.  ISPs already have bit-caps in place, so the days of "all you can eat" are long gone for many Internet users.  It isn't net neutrality that is the impediment because bandwidth usage pricing is consistent with a neutral network model (in fact, it goes a long way to addressing the traffic shaping concerns).
