Apple…is in talks with Comcast [about] a streaming-television service that would use an Apple set-top box and get special treatment on Comcast’s cables to ensure it bypasses congestion. (…) Apple…wants the new TV service’s traffic to be separated from public Internet traffic over the „last mile“ [and] ensure users don’t see hiccups in the service or buffering…making its video the same quality as Comcast’s TV transmissions. (…) Under the plan Apple proposed [its] video streams would be treated as a „managed service“. … Those services travel on a special portion of the cable pipe.  

Niemand hat die Absicht die Netzneutralität zu unterwandern – lasst es uns einfach „Managed Service“ nennen.
