I considered this but, I also see a strong and growing stronger movement of municipalities to roll their own. Among other reasons they see it as a means of attracting businesses to their towns. A paradigm shift is going to be forced upon Crapcast and co. whether they like it or not. Cable subscribers are bleeding out of these companies as consumers adopt data only services. Municipalities are now moving in and filling that role with far more attractive offers. Municipalities won't be harmed by title II, but it certainly won't be business as usual for the legacy players under it. As the saying goes "karma's a b**ch".

As a consumer, not seeing much downside in that one. Can only mean we get rates that resemble the rest of the world. The tellcos have a long history of being money grabbing douche bags--at least here in the US. They got slapped for this with the Ma Bell breakup. They didn't learn. An intervention is long overdue.

I think you might be searching for the term "nostalgia bias" otherwise known as rosy retrospection.


Nothing annoys a young person like an old person talking about the "good old days" especially when there exists objective historical records demonstrating that they were dumber, they had a lower quality of life, their technology was inferior, their brand of politics had horrendous consequences, etc..

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from a rigged demo.
