You forgot to mention that a small number of major corporations own the vast majority of the telecom sector end to end - they own the teams, the stadiums, they own the channels, the broadcasting infrastructure, they own the distribution system, the last mile, and multiple connections into virtually every home in the country: they own it all. Soon there will be only 2.
And we have a regulator that thinks ALL of this is ok and tells us this is how a market system works.
Political douchebaggery at it's finest.
