Basically if the ISP's get public funding then they can only charge for the service they actually provide and services that require a timely and consistant flow (like streaming) be a seperate charge to the general web and email services again with it's own guaranteed bandwidth across their network independant of source.

I would make it so that any provider who wants a share of the cherrys must provide an acceptable services outside of the cities on both data types, this would change the game. Yes many providers would go to the wall but the big ones would be tied into increasing their infrastructure and service, if they leave the market then the infrastructure becomes public property. After all we paid for it and so far they haven't given value for money.
