Re: That's Reasonable
And you think this will happen with little or no competition. The only competition I am seeing now is mainly in big cities. In smaller cities and towns (and where I live) there has not been any competition between the sole SBC and cable co. for a long time. They are not adement about offering new services if they do not have to.
Competition is a better way of forcing a company to do business in a certain way, weather they want to or not. I do agree that it does seem just like the government to control something but when there is a controlling monopoly involved I think the government needs to step in. In this case they were probably once again bought off by the major telcos.
The same will probably happen with the cable cos. case.

Eventually, it will come . . . but what you have to remember, is that Broadband internet access is not a GOD given right! Many people enjoy living in small towns, away from the hustle and bustle of life, and sometimes I long for that, but it comes with a price!
People wonder why the US is so far behind countries like Korea and Japan when it comes to broadband, it's because here in the US, we still have wide open spaces! You won't find much of that in Japan or Korea, that's for sure.
