Does not compute
"Cable companies that provide internet access contend that in a free market, so long as they disclose it, they should have the right to control their product including which websites download quickly, which websites download slowly and which don't download at all... in principle, I agree with that" followed by "Internet is a necessity: it's like water, it's like electricity it's like a telephone".
How does the first part tally with the second part? A necessity shouldn't have artificial restrictions unless you pay more to make it work the way it was supposed to in the first place.
It's nice he's decided not to follow the party line (we scratch their backs and later on they'll scratch ours), but I still can't follow his argument.
