Outside of DC area, < $50/mo at 200/200. Because there is competition in 
the local market between Verizon and Cox.

Once OneWeb and Starlink become a thing, a lot of providers that have 
enjoyed a monopoly may have competition. This is on top of 5G in dense 
markets. Competition can drive the market faster.
