    Adam, you've hit upon a point that makes small ISPs like me particularly uncomfortable. It's central planning — which seldom leaves room for or gives a voice to the “little guy” or the innovator. The government does need to fix broken markets (especially ones that it's responsible for breaking) and prevent anticompetitive behavior — and, yes, that may mean some regulation of prices if monopolists are gouging. But beyond those things it should regulate as little as possible.
