Killing Themselves

As a good economist I'm supposed to believe in the profit maximizing behavior of corporations but I have to admit that I'm a bit puzzled by the desire of the telcos to kill net neutrality. It makes sense that any individual (large) company would like to be free from the regulations that all others face, but I have a hard time understanding how killing net neutrality wouldn't screw things up so badly that they'd really come to regret the whole idea.
