Google "In the net neutrality vision of the world, broadband providers simply deliver packets as they are paid to do. When it was just a set of online services, Google happened to fall on the side of citizens and used to advocate against broadband companies controlling the pipes. Now that it’s an ISP itself, Google is becoming a net neutrality hypocrite." This is why trusting companies - any company - is simply a bad idea. Companies don't care about you, and those that say they do are liars.

Good luck finding an ISP that will let you run, by default, an email server. Mine requires me to fill out a form on their website.

My ISP allows that, and much more. There are no restriction on the kinds of servers or services you can run from your own home - other than the usual congestion disclaimers (e.g. you're not allowed to use thousands of GB per day, since that would harm other customers).

America might have retarded, monopolistic ISPs and a 3rd world internet infrastructure, but not every country does.
