    This isn't a libertarian-vs-statist issue. Net neutrality is good for everybody (except Comcast of course). It sounds like Cruz's comment had the intended impact on you.

    Agreed. I'm in a rural area. If I fired my ISP - which is DSL - I'd have to go satellite, which limits uploads/downloads. No other option. I also hear VPN doesn't work well with satellites.

    So technically, I could fire my ISP. But I'd have to quit my job.

    On the plus side, my ISP has worked with me a lot on my past connection issues, and when they started installing broadband accelerators they called me to see if I wanted to be part of the beta program (DUH! I said yes almost before the sentence was done!) So I have a good ISP.

    Well, if you don't like the fact that you only have one internet provider to choose from, then you should move to a major metropolis like a normal person.

    Kidding aside, though, I'm so pissed off that it's taking Google Fiber so long to expand to more cities. I mean, Provo? Provo?? ****ing Provo Utah gets Google Fiber before Los Angeles?

    Sure it is. The govt should not be regulating private business, of which the internet is a private business.

    See, that's what Cruz has you doing: he has you arguing against your own interests. You were fooled, and it was ridiculously easy to do.

    There you go, you have options. And how is it my problem that you choose to live in a rural area? Why should I pay for the FCCs 100million project to bring broadband to rural areas?

    I'm pretty sure you're not going to have to pay $100,000,000 to anybody, although there have been hilarious clerical errors of that type before.

    So the government is helping to provide a higher quality, lower cost option that the free market can't beat yet?

    It's not about "need," right? If an alternative was of superior value, people would go with that even if they didn't "need" to. Get me something with the same speed and reliability at less cost, and absolutely I'll switch to that. I'll even accept a little bit slower at a greatly reduced cost, more bang for my buck.

    And let me know when a substantial alternative appears in the market instead of a laboratory.

    So, seriously, airlines shouldn't have regulations regarding pilot duty times and recurrent training?
