I am trying to parse your statement above with a scenario below:

End user Customer A subscribe for 10mbps from and ISP to access the Internet
Another end user customer B subscribe for 1mbps from the same ISP to access
the Internet

Customer A and B are accessing a common service (say Netflix service). Are
you then saying net-neutrality lost its meaning if netflix does not charge
the ISP differently based on customer A and B bandwidth capacity?
