Typically I am against regulation

By: NYTrojan

but the problem is we've allowed internet providers to have effective monopolies.  They have some of the strongest lobbiests around.  Google, with all their heaps of cash, couldn't crack the market and had to give up on their Google Fiber initiative.  If GOOGLE can't afford to create a competitor then who can?  

If we accept that the free market has been crippled in this instance (and I do.  How many internet providers can YOU choose between?  2 maybe?) then the only solution we have left is to protect customers rights to the internet.  It's the greatest invention of our time.  IMO we must keep it as free as possible.
