What about barriers to entry?

by Shihang

I’ve been keeping tabs on net neutrality for a while now, and it occurs to me that there is free-er entry into the market for internet services than there is for the ISP industry. In this case, surely the greater monopoly is the ISPs, rather than the internet companies. People can stop using google, uninstall their firefoxes, and start their own video sites with minimum cost, but mostly, they can’t really launch satellites to get their own internet. Am I getting the science wrong?

P.S. Perhaps there are brand barriers to entry, but since the internet gives us free access to information, the problem really sorts itself out to a large extent.
