The two-tier net, as feared by advocates of the Net Neutrality amendment, might see ISPs charge content providers -- for example, Apple -- a premium to ensure that the data -- say, from the iTunes Music Store -- get priority connection speeds to the end users, who in turn may have to pay a premium for "enhanced" Internet access to be able to receive that data at a reasonable rate. Everybody wins!

Well, at least everyone working for Comcast, Verizon, or that erstwhile arm of the NSA, AT&T.
