The scam is to make the customer pay twice

Net neutrality means that because you paid for your internet connection and Netflix paid for their internet connection, Netflix don't need to pay your internet company extra for you to be able to watch Netflix movies.

And if Netflix did have to pay extra, it would just raise the price to you, so you'd be paying your internet company twice: once for an internet connection and once to be able to use it.

Internet companies like to be paid twice, which is why they don't like net neutrality.
