"In this case your government has rightly decided it is better to butt out and not interfere with business and the market. "
That would be the same government which has for the most part passed legislation and regulation ensuring that only one business is IN any particular geographic market.
Net Neutrality rules would not be needed if there was competition for supply. Across most of the USA, there isn't and consumers are faced with legislated monopolies.
