Regardless it's DSL. No one cares about copper anymore. Fiber or go home.

Not exactly. DSL remains a viable part of the equation, given the real costs of deploying fiber. Trouble is, as cheap as it is, subscribers still don't want it.

But you've overlooked the real underlying reason that the taxpayers are wasting $1K/household to subsidize DSL: it gives the socialists, anarchists, populists, Occupoos, Dems, and lets not forget our esteemed blogger, Karl, a ten-year extension on fighting the good fight, as they will continue to assail Frontier, et al, for not providing "faster broadband", whatever that is at the moment.
