To be honest, its more and more of an issue in today's world.
Your ISP can cut your internet to stop your from exercising free speech.
Your host can cut your web server.
Your twitter can be banned
Your facebook can be banned
Your google searches can be empty (as in, it never returns results for you/your site/etc)
Major media outlets are commonly owned and can decide to not publish your story
For all practical purposes, your free speech can be suppressed today - it was much more difficult 30 years ago, some due to technology, some due to the way media is organized.
I sort of wonder if at some point we'll have to make it so that you have the right of free speech on de-facto public platforms, or if an additional govt platform would be required, so ensure that your message can be hosted somewhere, no matter how offensive - and would require a lawsuit to find out if its actually hate speech (maybe that'll force people to grow a pair and accept other's opinion may not be always the same as theirs = OH GOD ITS A SEXIST JOKE! KILL HIM WITH FIRE! STONE HIM!)
