Re: You got some right, some wrong First: I'm not arguing against net neutrailty -- I'm 100% in favor of it!
Second: "How is wireline any different? It likewise has a capacity and that capacity can be reached."
There's no natural or physical law that says Verizon can't put another line of fiber optics into my home. And another. And another. And another. It's different with wireless technologies.
Setting aside the economics of the matter, even if wireless carriers wanted to build cell towers every 500 meters, townships, municipalities, local governments, "safety" advocates, and "you and I" (NIMBY) won't let them. Wireless carriers are capacity-constrained by both natural and manmade laws.
But yeah, fiber-fed sites are critical, and there's currently too few of them. This will change over time.
