Tom's Hardware offers up a great reason why you should distrust Time Warner:

At the time, Verizon and others were very vocal about net neutrality, especially when the U.S. government and FCC were looking into the matter. Verizon and others made it clear that net neutrality was much ado about nothing. They lied.

Time Warner Cable, which provides Internet connectivity for millions is a big opposition to net neutrality. Alright, let's cut the bull: Time Warner Cable, which provides Internet connectivity for millions, wants to screw you.
Yes, the quote is especially harsh - but the reality is that TW is trying to do, through a back door, the same thing they tried a while back with their extortion fees and "traffic prioritizing" - they want to shut down sites like Hulu or Youtube in order to force customers back to their pay-per-play Cable TV services.
