If we allow the government to socialize internet access, we'll wind up with a system that is constantly in need of repair, upgrades, and endless red tape to get even the slightest thing done, along with constant pressure to charge rich people more and give access away for free to poor people in the name of 'fairness...' We need to be stopping the relentless growth of big government, not find more things for them to get their paws into.

So basically we'd end up with the same system corporations offer us, but (according to TFA) cheaper and faster. Sounds good.

Here in Europe many people are calling for closed borders as if radicalism only occurs through immigration, while a lot does indeed occur locally with the help of literature that is - what isn't? - spread through internet. Shutting down internet is foolish, as I hope most of Slashdot will agree with me, but it is hardly any more foolish than the cry for isolation through border controls and closures.

It seem incongrous to impose speech limitations in the US, which actually has the right to free speech as part of their constitution.

The US constitution limits powers of Congress, it does not regulate private entities. Your right to free speech does not depend on Google willing to host that speech on Blogger.
