It is pretty easy to figure out really.
Content providers want net neutrality because it takes power away from network providers. The last thing Facekike or Jewgle want is some internet provider being able to dictate wether or not users can access their services at full speed (or at all for that matter). Net neutrality also enables small startup companies (something Silicon Valley is known for) to compete on an equal playing field, for them to be acquired by the big players when it is convenient. Without network neutrality, small companies would find it harder to get going without either consumers or content providers themselves paying ISP's a premium for fast enough connections to users. Without network neutrality, ISP's can continue to let their network links saturate during peak hours without bothering to upgrade their networks to handle the strain (this already happens regardless, the FCC does nothing even with current rules in place).
In the end it is less an argument about consumers vs corporations and moreso content providers vs network providers. No matter which side wins, the kikes win and we all lose.
Page 2 of this probably explains it far better:
In some ways indirectly it already has. Small ISP's that cannot afford to constantly upgrade hardware really struggle against the big incumbents without at least some sort of throttling. Most are being bought up or simply dying out. Plus there is the unrelated issue of big ISP's writing legislation for local governments to outright ban competition like municipal ISP's from existing.
You say that now, but just wait until ISP's are allowed to block content that they don't like or uses too much bandwidth (netflix, torrents, etc). Hell, some ISP's are owned by the "liberal media" (comcast owns NBC for example) and could simply start blocking/throttling websites that do not fit their agenda. They could also block proxies, vpn's, and alternate DNS services making circumvention nearly impossible. This is the sort of shit that is already happening in other tyrannical countries.
