End of the internet?

"The nation's largest telephone and cable companies are crafting an alarming set of strategies that would transform the free, open and nondiscriminatory Internet of today to a privately run and branded service that would charge a fee for virtually everything we do online."

I mean, is there anyone out there who actually thought this WASN'T going to happen?
1) give something away for free
2) get people hooked
3) then start charging for it
