There is one small downside to this: no doubt some will find it to their advantage to be untaxed and otherwise invisible to the state, and so disconnect deliberately.
Perhaps the benefits culture is so well-entrenched that few will join those who presently live off the grid, but who knows what it will do for clandestine internet access tools?
