Argument: Graduated response would severely damage small ISPs
"Estimating The Cost of a Three-Strikes and You're Out System." Michael Geist Blog.

The UK estimates that the costs on small Internet providers are so great that consideration should be given to exempting them entirely, since the additional burden would result in decreased competition. The same report identifies the disproportionate harm to wireless carriers, who would face massive capital costs and be placed at a competitive disadvantage."
