The essential point is: if people have the bandwidth, they fill it,
sometimes with uses we haven't dreamed up yet.  In the USA at least,
creativity and productivity are _often_ bandwidth-limited (that's
documented).  Open the door and you get a positive feedback loop of:
opportunity -> creativity -> perceived need -> services ->
opportunity, leading to More Money For Everyone, including ISPs.
