Killing net neutrality will not help the disabled

Abolishing net neutrality means there would be fast and slow lanes on the backbone of the Internet permanently which toggles all downstream, regular Internet connections, based on who pays more perpetually. If you were a Hulu user (an online streaming movie service) and there was no network impartiality/net neutrality, you’d pay the same monthly rate as a Netflix user, but get a much slower bandwidth connection upstream than using the other provider Netflix, which is comparable in terms of service, that’s owned by larger conglomerate corporations who own a lot more Internet backbone infrastructure too (it’s already paid for, incidentally I’m talking about the line leases). The FCC sort of regulates what goes on with the Internet as a whole. The fact that Verizon says they think that abolishing net neutrality will help the disabled is farcical.
