So whats the problem here?

My son, David, decides to become an internet service provider and
thinks he can get 1.5 million subscribers. (or pick a more reasonable
number.... but you must pick a number)  The Internic, be reasonable,
tells him to talk to those already in the biz, that already have blocks
allocated in the areas David wishes to service.

Should he complain?
(I am tempted to re-raise my questions from AA and earlier. Just how do
we profile a provider?  As opposed to simply a number hoarder?  I tried
this before and did not get much response. Perhaps its time to dust off
the old notes and try & deal w/ this in a published form.)
