I was so looking forward to a rant.

One hour south of Silicon Valley, I'm merely one mile south of town where there's suddenly no DSL, no cable internet, no reach from wireless, satellite sucks, but luckily a nearby cell tower pumps 500bps EVDO at $50 after I installed an amp and antenna.

Similar to nearly all infrastructure policy, most firms are adept when investment can be avoided. And across various capital reserves, I think we've paid for mandated improvements we are not getting.

This link is to a story that explains that when Verizon installs FiOS, you lose the copper cables. This is permanent and removes any competition for the phone and data service. Nice touch eh?

I am in a Verizon pocket in the Bay Area and they have the most expensive, lousiest service for phone and DSL. Unfortunately the competition from cable is just as bad.
