Comments
This bill would prohibit any broadband services provider from offering or renewing services to consumers in any part of Virginia where certain media is throttled, blocked, or prioritized on the basis of its content, format, host address, or source.

In other words, this cuts off Internet services providers’ source of revenues (more customer payments) in areas where they interfere with neutral access to Internet content.

This bill could provide a vehicle for courts to consider whether the FCC properly prevented states from prohibiting this conduct by ISPs.
