(The media always seems to be on about something America isn't doing well enough.... -rolls eyes-)
Its not that it isn't doing it well enough , its that the telecom oligopoly is purposely manipulating the market and freely raping the consumer as it
desires. They are nickeling and dimeing you to death for every bit and angle they can think of. BTW i'm OK with that in a free market as I have a
choice , but we don't have much of a choice and the Telecom Oligopoly (ATT,Comcast,Verizon) lobbies hundreds of millions to keep it that way. In
essence they are dictating the market to the consumer instead of the consumer dictating the market.
At the hint of some major competition from Google fiber there first response was to act with gov't regulations to prevent google from doing what its
doing. In the few markets where google fiber was implemented all the sudden the Oligopoly in place comes out and says oh yeah we can provide those
speeds too and without raising your rates.
Keep in mind that Comcr@ptisc is one of the biggest and most profitable ISP in the nation, all the while consistently being ranked among the top hated
corporation by its customers. That is typically due to lack of competition. You can't be successful business in a free market , if your customers
consistently hate you.
The only free market and competition we get is when Oligopoly industries collide ( in this case: Telecom vs online tech companies).
