And remember what happens to just about every tax! It goes up.
I know many communities in our area collect a franchise fee from users of cable tv. Call it what you want but any time the government has a business collect a fee on their behalf,it's a tax.
In reality,the government is the only ones authorized to legally collect taxes but that is another story!
But I do agree,keep the internet tax free,besides,how do you tax foreigners visiting US websights,chargeppv(Pay per visit)?

and with the govt comes regulation. 
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called the government. They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
