Lovely dream SS, I hope that someday (in our lifetime would be welcome) that it will actually happen. Given the current FCC's attention to the population instead of the big ISP's, there's a snowball's chance in hell of it coming to pass. Even if the FCC started mandating change and forcing competition it just seems doubtful that it's even possible.
At the rate the big guys have been sucking up any competition, we'll soon only have one company in the whole country that owns everything. The board and the shareholders will love it. The rest of us, not so much.
Send the lady on the horse my way, I can use a nice fantasy about now cause reality sure does suck, doesn't it?
