Leading the Internet by Example

I’d like to see the major internet companies get together and buy Time Warner Cable. Specifically the companies that indirectly profit from an easily accessible and fast internet like Google, Netflix, and Facebook, that worry about net neutrality and Comcast buying Time Warner Cable. I’d really like to see a couple of the other cash rich tech companies, like Apple and Yahoo, get involved and have the group buy a major backbone provider like Level 3 or XO Communications and work toward being a major global internet provider. Since these companies already make money and don’t need to profit from being an ISP, they could continually reinvest the profit from this venture in the network, hopefully putting pressure on other internet providers to step up their game. What better way to promote the internet and net neutrality ideas than to ante up and lead by example?
