The upside?

And Amazon is doing for space communication what it's done for cloud computing

Apart from the tautology, "cloud computing" had increased concentration in the market which ultimately means less choice for users.

Skylink, et al. are examples of the "tragedy of the commons". Removing any kind of regulation to encourage private investment will bring short term riches for first movers but at the expense of everyone else and, eventually, of everyone. It's like overfishing in the skies.
