So ISP service is substandard in some areas and not getting better after a long time. Clearly the cause is protectionism of some kind, because without it you would see competition and improvement.
And the answer seems to be, not "remove the protectionism" but instead "keep the protectionsm but let the government in on it."
Yeah, that sounds like it will 'work' pretty well. Can't let free market forces correct the problem, nooo, just shovel more manure into the old wagon and hope it can stand the strain.
