"As you might have expected, the FCC was quick to release a statement claiming that gutting the popular consumer protections would usher forth a magical age of connectivity, investment, and innovation."

Unbiased media, hard at work again.

_Actually_ free markets, maybe.

Gamed bullshit, regulated by hacks and fucked by lobbyists: not a chance.

I bet you think the oligarchs this benefits give an eighth of a fuck about you.

Clueless victim.

There are no victims. Even if the consumer is totally fucked over, they are not a 'victim.' Jesus fucking christ, marxist progressive bullshit.

You think natural monopolies will be any better?

I think the only way to have real competition is to have municipal fiber and only allow private ISPs to business directly with end users.

The absence of a market isn't a market failure. It's a failure of regulation.

Amazing that so many dummies can find their way to install this extension and even have the ability to write, but but can't see that letting ISPs clip data streams they deem less desirable than ones that generate direct profit is a good thing.

Correct, if you except the necessity of intervention into market forces into your heart.

Otherwise, no. It's a market failure. Unregulated markets always eventually lead to plutocracy, of one kind or another.
