As a stockholder......

i expect them to charge as much as possible while meeting demand in the marketplace environment they are in. in japan or korea, perhaps pennies per mb is all they can get away with, but here in the US, if demand is being met, why lower the price?

Meeting Demand?! Yours, as a stockholder, or what the "Marketplace Environment" actually wants as opposed to what you THINK it needs?

Yeah and as a regulator, the FCC and FTC are supposed to foster competition so that *opolies can't get away with so many of our pennies.

The fact that the price is higher here means something is wrong with our competitive structure.

As a consumer, I would prefer to get quality service for less money, and stop pandering to the stockholders by not upgrading and instead maintaining 20-50 year old lines...

Water is expensive in the Sahara Desert. What regulatory mistakes are being made there?

So, available bandwidth in the US is a natural resource as scarce as water in the Sahara desert?

It's a resource. It's scarcity depends on a multitude of factors but it's a resource the same.
