Reasons To Disagree

Government regulations tend to close down competition rather than increasing it by increasing costs.

All gummint reg's do is tilt the playing field, favour the inefficient, create anomalies and create a need for more reg's - a vicious circle which ends in chaos.

A fairer marketplace is achieved by the right to trade voluntarily without any impediment.

Reasons for Remain Neutral

The purpose of government regulation is to create a fair marketplace. It does not necessarily follow that there will be more companies competing. Who still has a stranglehold on the telecommunications market?

governments usually over regulate & under facilitate - causing regulation to become a burden, rather than an accelerant
