I think it's better for the Internet to remain open, especially with the tendency of this sort of "choice" to become more a dictate that works out against the customer's favor, especially when a small number of players (ISPs) are involved. But I'm with you in feeling like I could probably drop my usage of it to a tiny fraction of what it is now, with little or no harm to my overall quality of life.

That may have to do with remembering life pre-Web. It was basically fine. Really. Impulsive consumption was harder and we were comfortable not having constant, instant, total access to all the world's trivia. So it was kinda better.
