Re: Why do you even need consultants?

lol. Sure thing, we'll just pave our own roads and install our own FTTH network.

"The problem here is .. government ... collect ... redistribute tax money."

You said it right there. Rather than collect taxes and use it to build their own FTTH network, they are "redistributing tax money" to private companies who will charge them 5 to 100 times the price. In addition, you fail to accept that the private sector who is supposed to do eeeeevvvrything better, failed epically here.

You guys seem to assume that if you repeat these baseless talking-points and cherry-pick examples to suit the narrative, it will somehow come true.

BTW This is a classic Red state in play here, where they run the government inefficiently, and then use the imminent failure as an example to support their dogma against government.

Government has purpose. Limited purpose.

We can expect a central government to set standards for telecom and broadband interconnectivity, but beyond that, once you expect them to make everything "fair", the price goes up for everyone, and coverage doesn't happen, as the capital is taxed away, and the local entrepreneurs stand down, knowing that those with friends in the statehouse can squash them like a bug.

Not sure why you embrace government at all costs.

We would certainly be better off building (locally contracting) our own roads and FTTH.

Are you posting from an alternate universe where state subsidized 1 Gbps FTTH doesn't exist in Japan, South Korea, and Europe?

Actually, it's the blue states that are in financial troubles. And if you take it even further, Democratic local government also has a high bankruptcy rate. That has been proven here in the USA time and time again.
