We're a consumption, gotta have it, society and many aren't willing to make that sacrifice. Witness the continuing cost increases in pay TV.
customers do sacrifice for new infrastructure. they pay their monthly fees.
Pay TV only increases in price because the market hasn't stabilized yet. The powers that be realized that they can get away with charging more and more for the service and people keep paying for it. There is no competition therefore the products will just go up in price all the time.
