Your access to the internet is not a public utility or a state/federal run highway. A company paid to build your access to the internet, laying miles of cable/fiber/copper (whatever). Lack of competition may be a valid argument on some level, but all in all, the company that provides your access owns the plant. You didn't drop the copper for your access. Personally, I would have a problem with customers telling me I had to use a certain brand of detergent or specific equipment in my imaginary dry cleaning business, or that I couldn't charge an extra 5.99 for express cleaning service or 2.99 delivery fee.
