That statement makes zero sense in this context. By not abiding by the rule of net neutrality (all packets must be treated the same across the internet), there is LESS competition or choice.

When it comes to looking out for my interests, you know who I trust more than the government?

Corporations.

What's good for the shareholder is good for me, too.

Folks think that if the government doesn't regulate something, then corporations will have all the power. Regulation allows the corporations to buy favorable legislation and removes the power from the consumer and gives it to the corporation.

Corporations are not looking out for you. Here's a flowchart.

1. Does this policy benefit us/our shareholders? If yes, go to 2. If no, go to 6.

2. Does this benefit our customers? If yes, go to 3. If no, go to 4.

3. Implement

4. Can we remain competitive in the market after implementing this shitty policy that hurts our customers? If yes, go to 3. If no, go to 5.

5. Can we lobby the government to remove customer choice in this instance? If yes, lobby, then go to 3. If no, go to 6.

6. Scrap or re-write.

A libertarian utopia removes step 5. You're still dealing with corporations who work for shareholders, not for you. This might be okay in some markets, but not public utilities (and internet is now considered a a human right by the UN.)
