Read the website.

This is being sold as a way to allow ISP to limit access to services
like bittorrent, the way we distribute the PCT Class DVDs, but the way
it is being done goes much farther.

"Under the proposed new rules, broadband providers will be legally
able to limit the number of websites you can look at, and to tell you
whether or not you are allowed to use particular services. It will be
dressed up as ‘new consumer options' which people can choose from.
People will be offered TV-like packages - with a limited
number of options for you to access."
