So much for a more "competitive market" after the repeal of Net Neutrality

It's already proven to be the problem, multiple times in this thread.

What is the alternative?

History has shown that free markets almost always (if not always) end up in monopolies so what have you got left? Revolution?

And yet here we have one of the biggest telecom companies trying to convince (bribe) the FCC into making it harder for smaller businesses to compete with them in the wireless market. How is changing the rules to force small business out of the picture allowing for a more competitive market? Wasn't that pretty much the entire argument against NN from it's opponents, that repealing it would make the market more competitive? Why are they trying to make the market less competitive if that was the goal of repealing NN?

The first people who bought claims over cell tower locations paid around $15.00/claim so i heard from an old business owner. Now they are stinking rich.

Repealing NN was taking the gov't back out of regulating internet services. Regulations allow gov't to pick and choose who they want to get all the business and contracts. Aren't we tired of seeing corporations give millions of dollars to politicians and seeing those corporations get political favors?

It's time for the masses to realize that the results of most gov't programs are the OPPOSITE of their namesake. NN would not have been neutral or fair at all. NN would have allowed gov't to limit bandwidth to smaller ISP's to give more to their favored ISP's, who donated more to the right politicians. NN would have, in time, destroyed the internet for the actual USERS - you and me. To satisfy gov't ultimate goal in most cases, after the internet became so screwed up, the gov't would then offer their BS professional services to swoop in and solve the problem, giving gov't ultimate control and ownership of the internet.

NN was a scam just like climate change is. Gov't says we are poisoning our planet so they can swoop in & save it via their carbon credit system - which would tax the population into mass joblessness and homelessness and make only the politicians and Rothchilds richer, while pollution remains unchanged. youtu.be...

Wasn't the whole crux of Net Neutrality that ISP's couldn't determine what data was allowed to be used and charge based off of that? IE block Netflix, or charge extra for Hulu, etc.

They have been attempting to increase their coverage zones since day 1. Completely separate issue.

So the solution is government, after all?
