I wish the myth of ISP competition would finally just die. Yes, for some people there may be more than a single ISP available. Those of you that live in affluent neighborhoods in suburbs of large cities probably have at least 2 providers, I'll grant that. Me, I live in the middle of Boston, right between Harvard Medical and Harvard Business and *I* have exactly 1 ISP to choose from, Comcast. If me, a user in one of the tech friendliest cities in the country can't get a choice of ISPs who can? If Comcast were to do anything I don't like I'd have to grin and bear it. I have no problem keeping the government out of the Internet the day we actually have a choice 4 or 5 providers in the big markets. Until then we treat ISPs like we treat electric companies, as regulated monopolies.
