We could easily be like Japan (at least in the cities) with lots of choices, speed, services, lack of restrictions, and low prices....

The U.S. will never be like Japan or any of the other 14 countries preceding the U.S. on the BB penetration list. And the reason for that is simple. The Japanese et al. build their infrastructure (i.e. broadband) with the idea of the greatest good for all. Doesn't matter what your socio-economic status is. This philosophy is completely anathema to everything the U.S. has become in the past 50 yrs or so.

We're not about the greatest good anymore. We're about the greatest good(in this case wealth) to an elite uberwealthy 1%. In this case, it's VZ et al.
