As long as corporations have sock puppets in places of authority nothing will change. It especially will not change as long as they live in a protected environment.
There are communities in America with tiny populations that have no television, no cable, and will soon have no phone. The travesty is this little city is 20 miles from a state capital served by AT&T. It was not big enough to bother with - a runt pup to be starved to death - and they didn't. The senior at home will have no phone. .
AT&T is determined to drop POTS and everything else even remotely inconvenient. Wanna try a VoIP phone get VioPo. It works. Friend in Dallas refuses to pay for half-a** expensive telco or cable phone, Vonage, MagicJack. . He's had this for almost 4 years now and loves it. It takes a minimum on 1MB uplink before it will work properly. Better to pay $9 for a phone that is half-a** like mine than $40 like I do know. -- Mac: No windows, No Gates, Apple inside

It ain't gonna happen in rural America. You will only find it in heavily populated cities and perhaps in larger metro areas where you find schools with 20-40K students Maybe -- Mac: No windows, No Gates, Apple inside
