Public Utility

Well he said..." We are convinced that Internet services are no different than other public utilities, and the vast majority of Internet users should not be asked to subsidize a small minority of heavy users. " So do it, make it a public utility and base the fees like Electricity and Water. Small base fee and a usage fee would be fair, and price increases would have to be reviewed, discussed and approved or denied just like other utilities. Sounds reasonable to me.
