Re: More ports is still the wrong answer

"The only real solution is to decouple cables from service, as we do here in the UK"

I think that's the real long term solution. Haven't we reached the point in our modern technological society where internet networks should be treated like the roads we drive on? Despite the recent trend towards privatization of a small portion of the US's highways, if the entire highway infrastructure were handed to corporations, the pitchforks would come out en masse!

Yet, here we are, being slowly bled by private entities in order to get access to the internet, all because, as pointed out above, the cables are monopolized.
