Yup. And this isn't to say that I'm a proponent of broad government regulation either. But at least with government regulation we can see what they are doing and make sure they are protecting individual rights and freedoms (as opposed to protecting corporate interests). However, when your enemy lurks in the shadows, like corporations, they thrive on deregulation. Like a cancer their only goal is to spread and stamp out competition. Regulations that support INDIVIDUAL rights/freedoms and foster competition and consumer/employee rights are always needed... to level the playing field!

CORPORATIONS ARE NOT PEOPLE!... Support small start ups and Individuals! Rights & Freedoms belong to them and them alone.

Like the Kotaku article stated online gaming doesn't actually pull that much bandwidth. I am able to play BF4, NBA 2K and FIFA all on a 1Mb connection with no lag. Online gaming does not create more constraints to the overall bandwidth infrastructure.

Streaming on the other hand is a huge bandwidth monster. Services such as gaikai and netflix will eat up bandwidth but not gaming. I am trying to look at this in a positive light and maybe, we might just get developers hosting more dedicated servers further alleviating bandwidth traffic on the consumer end?

This is the natural outcome of unfettered capitalism. I suggest everyone check this out -- Economist Thomas Piketty's "Capital in the Twenty-First Century" is now the NUMBER ONE book on AMAZON. Incredible that a 700 page book on economic analysis would be the number one selling book. It details a fundamental flaw in the capitalist system that is dooming us all.

Gaming does not eat bandwidth but it does require extremely consistent service. Netflix buffers so if the connection slows down for a bit, in theory, you've already pre-loaded the next few seconds so it can continue uninterrupted. In a game, if it abruptly stops or slows down for 10 seconds then you are dead, scored on, or disconnected entirely.
