Patrick's talking about consumer broadband access.  Such AUP stipulations
are quite common.

This is in no way 'tantamount to extortion'.  Folks can either accept the AUP,
or choose not to enter into a contract for the service in question under those
conditions; there is no compulsion or coercion to do so.

And that would be a valid response if we actually lived in a place where I, or anyone else, had more than two choices, 
both offering roughly the same terms and pricing.  In my little corner of Fairfax Co, we have Cox or FiOS.  Across the 
Potomac in Montgomery, they can pick between Comcast and FiOS.  I hear that in other bits of the US, your cable and 
telco might be different, but other than the label, nothing else is.
