Verizon downplays impact of net neutrality rules [telecom]

One of the key arguments put forward by the broadband industry in  
opposing federal regulation is that it would cause an enormous economic  
fallout. Aggressive oversight, Internet service providers argue, would  
raise costs for consumers and force telecom companies to stop investing  
in their networks. They wouldn't be able to offer new services or faster  
speeds.

In plain English, this roughly boils down to: "Leave us alone, or the  
average American gets hurt."

And you to whom adversity has dealt a final blow
With smiling bastards lying to you everywhere you go
Turn to and put out all your strength of arm and heart and brain
And like the Mary Ellen Carter, rise again
