Comcast is too big

Ma cable needs to be broken up.

They built the system with their own money.

However I'd totally be for municipal competition...

On the private property of others forcibly seized via utility easements.

I was actually referring to the whole walled garden concept though.

Wah? If you don't like them, do not give them your business. Do not encourage others to give them business. I do not like them and I encourage people to go elsewhere, however just because a company is big doesn't mean it needs to be broken up. That makes no sense.

People like that seem to be the same ones that want government intervention into everything.

You want the same people that provide the Postal Service and the DMV to supply your Internet service? Good luck with that one.

Sorry, but I don't want my cable node compromised by a bot flooding the network with spam. It's just not cool.

About the utility easements, maybe statewide franchising wasn't so great an idea, and munis need to kick the bad cablecos out if there's something better to be had.

The barriers to entry are too high for most anyone else.
