Can someone explain Net neutrality to me? [Wiki is not a good source at the moment, I believe. I've been watching the article for several days and it is constantly changing. The article is also very dense and difficult to digest]

So, can you summarize the issue and possibly give me some links to do some more reading on the subject other than the Save the Internet site? I don't like that particular site because they don't cite enough of their sources to gather a full picture, in my opinion. [For instance, "But Internet providers like AT&T, Verizon and Comcast are spending millions of dollars lobbying Congress to gut Net Neutrality", taken from the FAQ page. They list these numbers, but they don't back it up and I'm tired of trying to do the research. Here's another example, also from the FAQ: "What is Network Neutrality? Network Neutrality — or "Net Neutrality" for short — is the guiding principle that preserves the free and open Internet." O really. WTF is that supposed to mean?]
