Net neutrality is the principle that Internet service providers and governments regulating the Internet should treat all data on the Internet the same, not discriminating or charging differentially by user, content, website, platform, application, type of attached equipment, or mode of communication.
I do believe their campaign that allowed certain services to not use your data while others did violates Net Neutrality. But I'm not so sure about this one. I imagine it will be a while before we reach a point where we get truly unlimited data at any speed.
I do wish they would be more transparent about the fact that you have to pay extra if you want true 4G connection speeds and the quality of stream that comes with that.
