DPI censorship is not a 'competitive' advantage, so it's quite likely that
in a pure market society ('anarchocapitalism') without strong socialistic
governments and their stupid Internet regulations, most Internet providers WILL
NOT censor their connections, otherwise they will loose their customers. Most
customers are not willing to pay for censored Internet if they can choose
unfiltered free Internet. And the only one who can take them this right is
a monopoly for laws/regulations - the centralized government.
