Then I have no reason to leave my 50/50 fiber for $59/mo.
If that's available to you, WHY would you need a second provider (be they fiber, coax, lte or ?) the problem is not where it's practical/affordable/profitable to build out, it's the dozens of low other combonations that make raising money to build impossible.
Most US businesses are quite competive, but building out where market conditions or consumer demand doesn't assure adquite ROI isn't competing, it's stupidity.
