Yeah...because when the economy is sucking wind why not raise fees to
the consumer?!?!

Want to get broadband out to people, then deal with duopolies that many

are any number of small businesses that could respond to a broadband
deployment faster, quicker and cheaper! Talk with any CLEC and they have
countless stories regarding the horrors of dealing with an ILEC.
