It’s sad that this has come to an issue of courts and regulatory bodies. The real problem is that there’s nowhere else to turn. There is no tangible consumer choice.
I expect zero help from the U.S. government on this. They’ve repeatedly shown over the last 20 years, regardless of which political party is in power, that they’re incapable of and unwilling to regulate broadband in a way that helps consumers or technological progress at all.
We’re going to have to work around them. But I don’t see an effective, sustainable way to do that yet. There may not be one.
