Re: What do you expect???

Perhaps AT&T should just spin off it's rural markets into a new company and let it stand on its own merits providing services to unwanted markets.

You and I both know that is not a viable option, which of course is why you suggested it.

I understand financially rural markets are no quick return. However, I also understand that broadband/telecommunications are way to important to neglect them. They have the resources, they received the incentives, they can provide the service and suck up the expense while they enjoy their monopolistic/duopolistic market prices.

Why isn't that a viable option? Other rural carriers exists. Why need make another one?

And that's why it will never happen.

You're right... it will never happen until they are regulated into making it happen. Hopefully that day will come sooner rather than later.

Communism is not the answer. Regulations that force a person to part with their wealth to enrich the life of another is socialism.

Social Security and Medicare are a form of socialism, how many elderly are going to give them up?
