Competition
Some great points about competition, it's certainly the best bet for consumers in the long run as it sounds like you guys have it pretty rough. In the UK we have a pretty good spread of companies for broadband provision, but it's with our digital TV that there are some real monopolies.

Sky, owned by Rupert Murdoch's News Corp gets a year lead-in on every other service for movies and US TV. So you can have a Netflix and LoveFilm accounts, be connected to Free-sat and a variety of other services and still not get access to new movies until Sky has dropped them.

It's a total monpoly and hopefully over time we'll see these sorts of things come to an end.
