Re: Calm Down everyone
You're being naive. This has happened before, and the results will be the same.
Remember when Congress de-regulated cable and radio in the mid-1990's? How has that turned out? Now, you have limited choices and steep cable fees, so much so that there are renewed clamorings for cable regulation. As for radio, only a handful of companies own almost every radio station in this nation. In the city in which I live, two companies own all eleven FM and three AM stations. This limits the sources of media information available, and throttles the development of other industry (music, venue development, etc.).
Or how about when rail was de-regulated in the 1960's, and instead of answering consumer calls for increased competition, companies simply closed down passenger lines?
You also operate from the assumption that Americans can simply switch providers. In reality (and as stated in another post on here), most Americans only have access to one high-speed cable provider in their area.
Stop buying into the corporate propaganda, and ask yourself this: Why would these major corporations risk millions in legal fees to fight Net Neutrality if they wouldn't gain from it being stricken down?
