3 Mbps DSL!?!

I would love to have 3 Mbps DSL as the best I can get is 1.02 Mbps DSL for $24/month! The monopolies need to go!

Who would like to pay for the infrastructure to get better internet? The government? You're DSL company?

Second question is do you want 3g/4g mobile internet?

You think it's so simple to upgrade the speed? Go out and do it. Go to the city and get authorization. Buy some fiber, and build you're own network.

If I'm Verizon, I've stopped my FiOS rollout because it's fairly expensive and my 3g/4g customer base is exploding so I'm putting more resources into that.

Sure monopolies are a problem. But this isn't something where I can just plop a CVS down across from a Walgreens. You really can't just go out and magically make a new Fiber ISP appear.

The Telco cables in my area are 25+ years old. But why would they replace them? Is the demand there? Obviously not.
