LOL!

said by FFH:

Cable pricing strategies are designed to maximize profits. That is called capitalism.

If they charge too much, competitors WILL find a way to move in.

LOL.

Not with the current system they won't.

There are simply not enough different providers to make this a reality in the USA.

As a result the FCC needs to impose more harsh regulations to make the companies behave in a more reasonable manner while still making a decent profit.

the FCC? LMAO! Funny! The FCC has a hard enough time managing the rules that they set let alone making any new ones. The FCC needs to keep their hand and business away from the Internet and let private businesses handle it. If there was truly a market for more than one or two companies in an area the market would support that. But in fact, the market shows it can NOT support it and the cost is too high for another company to move in. Have you really seen the numbers from FiOS TV??? They aren't what VZ claimed they would be at first. Have you seen the numbers for U-Verse TV? The same way. Why do you think that over builders such as WOW and RCN aren't expanding much- if at all???? The cost is tooo high and the ROI is just NOT THERE.

Why is FiOS an overbuilt rather than a replacement system? In the area where I live Verizon won't install copper for "greenfield" construction and some day the existing copper will have to be replaced. Don't even get me started about the stock analysts who cater to investors that only care about the next quarter or two.
