        What happened to the Telecommunications Act of 1994 which stated that in order to prevent providers from monopolizing a region, all infrastructure (wire, fiber, etc) must be made available to all service providers regardless of who built it? We truly do not have a choice of telephone, cable, internet, power providers. It's all a matter of who built whatever is outside your front door. UNless you want to go satellite and pay through the nose for dial up internet speeds.

          TV and radio stations are licensed as a matter of being "in the public good." Once upon a time there was an FCC mandate that all news broadcasts had to be done in a fair and unbiased manner. Either that mandate has been dropped or it's no longer being enforced. Most media reporting today is skewed far to the Left and very biased. Everything is sensationalized and rushed to air to beat the other guy to the scoop. Inaccuracies are overlooked. Details are intentionally left out. I just don't see how any of this is "in the public good." Constitutional or not, we the public deserve fair and balanced reporting.

            With the recent rebanding, many rural areas con no longer receive "free" OTA broadcasts and must now rely on cable and satellite providers for even the most basic information services. With no real cap on paid providers' subscription rates the customer pays more and more the the "luxury" of even basic "OTA" television. My own cable service now charges me over 50% more than they did at service start 7 months ago. It's legal robbery. And As Jesse Skeen commented, these paid providers are double dipping by charging subscribers and advertisers.
