I wouldn't consider that a disagreement -- no question that in some cases deregulation has resulted in lowered costs to the consumer. Indeed, that's how the concept is sold to the general public, and it is more true than not. The issue here though is dictating how those lower costs are to be charged for. In essence, which customers get to pay a little more versus which customers get to pay a little less. Telling a cable company that they have to charge a certain way, for certain things, isn't going to pass muster.
