Re: Actually, Google and Facebook win either way

Sorry, that is nonsense. A new Google or Facebook today would have no problem with connectivity, because it's "light" footprint makes their data requirements practically sit in "noise": a random Google results page was around 0.65MB, Facebook frontpage was around 1.4MB...and Netflix is around 0.82MB / sec. Video is not a "human right", and Netflix's desire to avoid paying for peering with Comcast (which they had to eventually pony up for) is hardly worthy of government fiat.
