Indeed - colluding is generally frowned upon, in which case we are 
doomed to the current model, and may the best man win.

Ultimately, many ISP's and telco's will die. Consolidation will occur, 
but the "big operator" will no longer be as fat as they used to be. 
Focus on hauling bits around with no frills will be a good model, 
especially if you can keep the team lean. The chances of having large 
monopolies that do okay but stifle the market, being chased by 
struggling ISP's that favour passion + frills, is what is likely to 
happen, over the next decade or two.
