Re: Lack of competition in broadband, Get out of here!
said by fg8578:The rewards of what? Collecting monopoly rent on infrastructure partly subsidized by the public? Right of ways, tax breaks, a police force that prevents violent retaliation, a court of law that enables the telcos to crush viable competitors- these are all freebies given to corporations.
So the answer is to demand that telcos and cablecos invest all the money while letting their competitors share in the rewards?
Wow, Title II much?
No corporation has a right to profit, and if Title II makes it easier for competitors to make a profit and build their own network (like Free.fr in France), ultimately lowering prices and benefiting consumers, then it's obvious Title II needs to be enacted.
