Those concerned with defining (or not defining) network neutrality might want to consider first concentrating on the above. It's clear from discussion here and in related venues that even well-informed and technophilic 'net denizens may lack an accurate picture of the Internet service they're receiving, and it's hard to effectively define the problems or seek solutions without clear and reliable context.
