Researchers from the University of Florida have conducted a study about net neutrality and the results are surprising. The study concluded that if there was a net neutrality law would result in fewer investments in the tubes and fewer service upgrades. Also, ISPs that charge a content provider would risk losing customers if their favorite website was on the slow link.

The study also added that there would be more investments in the tubes if there wasn’t any restrictions on the net.

The study had a great line in the study: “better service comes from greater competition.”
