To some extent, net neutrality hurts customers. When Verizon or other service providers can solicit money from websites to allow them to load faster on their network, that gives companies an additional revenue stream other than traditional customers. If they don't have that, they'll just raise your rates. Plus, this might allow for other creative agreements, say a partnership where Netflix of Blockbuster streaming doesn't count towards data usage because Verizon and Netflix have entered into a revenue sharing agreement.

It hurts customers when an ISP outright blocks a website or service from their network.
