Heavy Artillery For The Little Guy

So it comes down to this.

The push to force you to use their LTE service begins. How long before they just not allow new DSL lines period.

In effect this means that your choices for AFFORDABLE broadband just dropped by one.

Look at it another way: If you're a Cable internet customer, in Verizon's footprint, Verizon has just ok'ed your Cable provider increasing their Internet fee by $20 or so a month... because what are you going to do... switch to Verizon, and still pay more?!?

Of course this is for areas OUTSIDE of FIOS, obviously.

Wow, just wow. The fail state of the lack of competition in the USA just gets better and better.

If they want to act like monopolies, fine, regulate them as one.

But we have no one to represent us in our best interest in Congress. Look at food industry, obesity, recent scandal with pink slime in your favorite meat. It's outrageous! And the middle class in America is shrinking. Middle class steadil pad mor for everything, inflatiOn goes up while companies offshore and lower wages. Once so good called middle class jobs like systems engineering tech support paid decent, now pays close to minimum wage. Many full time employes replaced with contractors with no paid holidays and health insurance. :X
