Both proponents and opponents of net neutrality have it all wrong.
Proponents say we need government regulation to prevent the ISP’s from staggering traffic. Opponents say we don’t need the government regulating the internet. Well, as smug as both sides are they’re both wrong.
The problem is with local municipalities who allow cable and telephone companies to have a regional monopoly. Think about it. You probably only have 1 cable company and 1 local telephone company where you live. That’s not much competition in the marketplace, is it?
The only way that’s going to stop is if enough people are vocal to their community leaders to put a stop to allowing these monopolies. Unfortunately, not enough people will even think about that until it’s too late.
