Not at all. Quite the opposite. You'll see major corporate investments in R&D and further developments for improvements with the internet as well as significant increased competition.

Anything managed or regulated by the gvt or any of its agencies is doomed to failure. Gvt needs to stay out of free enterprise.

To the extent that externals largely marginal in effect to our business can be . . .
Remember folks, net neutrality was only in effect a few years. We were fine before, we'll be fine now.
Give me free market every time--I will cheerfully deal with the consequences.

I have yet to see anything the government controls as a successful undertaking.

The free market made America the great country it is. 

In a free market, the consumer is the driver. If they want to start charging more for internet use/speed, we can use the consumer power to go to another provider.

without net neutrality all businesses will need to pay one of the big four to be found on the Internet. 

Page one on Google just got more expensive.

Freedom of information becomes extinct.

Controlling information, by the big four, becomes easier.

Society becomes MORE segmented.

Threat to real estate? the big get bigger.
