Oh, that's easy. If the government pays for 90% of the plant cost, I'm 
sure ILECs would love to share it with everyone else. Until then, put 
your own plant in. As an added bonus, when you put your own plant in as 
a CLEC, you can just serve the profitable areas and leave the poor ILEC 
having to serve the barn 15 miles from the nearest neighbor.
