MetroPCS Sues FCC Over Net Neutrality, Too

Re: how can anyone who uses the internet be against net neutrality?
But let's take it a step further. Let's say that an issue like net neutrality is on the politely table. An issue where large isp's have a vested interest. Now these isp's suddenly have a vested interest in who wins an election. So they start to contribute to senator x's campaign. Ok so far so good until they also start to give him free ad space, then deny service to his opponents web site. Now let's say bloggers start to pick up the story, only to find themselves throttled. The consumer is not free to choose another isp not only because there most likely isn't one in their area but because all these companies now share a common interest.
It maybe a little far fetched but not nearly so much as I would like. It's up to us what kind of a country we want to live in.
