Hmm.  It's your choice, of course, but I'd say that if you have a contract
with someone, you're as subject to the contract as they are.   If you enter
into the contract, abide by it.  If you find the terms unacceptable, don't
sign up to them: go and find a supplier who agrees with you (after making
it clear to the supplier you won't deal with exactly why you won't).

Your post does rather as though you want your supplier to be all ethical
and respect net neutrality, but you don't see fit to apply ethics to your
side of the contract.

Yes, I know, ethics are *so* 1950s.....
