    Internet freedom is just that -Freedom!! Allowing greater government interference curtails the small start-up firms which would never have a chance to prosper. The giants who provide the service are a bit paranoid of legitimate competition. Allowing them the right to regulate streaming speeds will stymie free speech and healthy competition. This is a government power grab because it is in the nature of governments to do so. Governments will grab power whenever it gets the chance. Politicians cant help themselves.
