U.S. Broadband Cannot Be Fixed Until You
Tackle Corruption Get Off Your Asses, Raise Some Private Capital, And Build It Yourself!
If more people who whined about broadband were willing to do this, then there would be more choices.
Okay, you go first. Go out and try to raise the capital to build a new network to compete in the last mile with the big telecom players. More likely than not, most investors would laugh at you because you are more likely to fail than succeed competing against the entrenched players in the market now. And then, let's say you get the money, lets see if you can survive the tactics of the existing telecom providers to keep you from building and still have money left to build a network. And then, if you have any money left, let's see how well you are doing after you get all of the required permits and RoW access. If you get beyond this point, I'll be amazed.
The truth, what you advocate is far and away much easier to say than to ever actually execute. That is a fact.--
