When we have accepted govt control over the internet, how long do you think it will be before the telcom lobbyists get the government to change the law so that they can control speeds? How long before the government figures out how to monkey around with speeds to it's advantage? How long before internet speed and connection is used against conservative sites?
In a free market, there is always an economic alternative to poor business practices. With government control, like everything else, you have to beg some politician or bureaucrat for what you want or need.
Sorry, but you can not always simply change. You saying it does not make it true.
