But at least a for-profit company works with the same economics as another for-profit company that might want to enter the area and compete. Once a government competitor is in place and it's business model is partially supported through tax revenues, there won't be many for-profit businesses that want to compete.
No one wants to compete on infrastructure. It's called a "natural monopoly". I swear, the lack of education shown on this site makes me sick to my stomach.
