Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai says his plan to gut net neutrality protections will help startups. But actual startups, the people who invest in them, and basic facts disagree.

Argument #1: “Prioritization Is Commonplace and Pro-Consumer”

Argument #2: “Some Prioritization Might Be Good, So We Should Allow All Prioritization”

Argument #3: “Websites That Generate A Lot Of Traffic Should Internalize The Costs Of That Traffic”

Argument #4: “Allowing Paid Prioritization Will Increase Competition Because ISPs Will Reinvest In Their Networks”

Argument #5: “ISPs Will Pass Paid Prioritization Revenues To Consumers”
