Re: Such high prices!
The problem with that idea is the fact that it ignores that it is the GOVERNMENT who has setup this system of non-competition to begin with! The government grants these companies "franchises" in a lot of areas which is more or less nothing than creating a government-sanctioned monopoly or duopoly. Joe Dirt from the down the street can't simply start stringing up or burying fiber all around town simply because he decides to do so. If government just GOT OUT OF THE WAY, there would be a hell of a lot more competition than we have today and prices would be a hell of a lot lower.
