Lessig: Internet arose because of regulation

In this article, David Isenberg exerpts a recent item from Larry Lessig. I found this to be interesting. The observation about neutrality under the regulated monopoly is largely true.

Is it equally true for unbundling? Would we have today's network if we had maintained the kind of regulation that we had then? Can you really draw the conclusion that Lessig's example from France and Japan are substantially due to "strict unbundling"? What kind of industry organization are Lessig (and perhaps Isenberg) advocating?
