No, the problem is that the internet was and is INSANELY expensive to build and maintain. It probably costs close to fifty billion a year just to keep the core of the internet up and running just for the United States. That's the backbone and local connections. It doesn't include what websites like Google pay to service their websites or what user terminals like PCs and smart phones cost.
