If you pay for 10GB per month or 10MB/s downloads Net Neutrality says that you can do whatever you want until that 10GB or 10MB/s download speed is exhausted and it's legal.

Without it the ISP can say you can stream our XYZ video product in HD but cannot use Netflix without us degrading the quality or simply by blocking access to it (unless they pay a surcharge, which gets passed to you)

Netflix has a vast user base so it really doesn't hurt them as much because they can simply pass the cost on to you or as they have been doing become the ISP. It would significantly impact the SYFY channel online streaming or smaller less revenue generating businesses and limit your choices.
