I have no problems with ISPs limiting bandwidth for certain usage (and would even deliberately choose one if it favours my usage) so long as: - They are forced to make this information publicly available so that people can make appropriate choices. - Changes to such limitations are either prohibited during the term of a contract, or else gives the user the option to terminate the contract immediately and receive a proportionate return of setup costs (eg. 50% if 6 months of a 12 month contract are up). - They are prosecuted vigorously should they engage with their "competitors" in price fixing. Anything less, and the barriers to competition would be too high for proper market forces to prevail. Corporations may talk up their love of a free market, but that is far from the truth. What they actually believe in is an unrestrained market where they can engage in anti-competitive behaviour to maximise their profits.
