Not much competition really, the wireless providers buy the fiber from the same companies as the regular consumers. So, when someone digs for any reason we try to maximize reach in that area. There's also a kind of gentleman's agreement between utility providers (water, electrical, fiber, roadworks etc) that they announce for others if they're planning to be digging somewhere. Others can join in and share the total cost of the dig.

That particular party needs to have serious ideas and proposals, clean out their ranks (from said nazis, racists and fascists - who have publicly proclaimed their beliefs), and last but not least, have competent people. There's so many videos out there of "politicians" that can't count or have no grasp of their own political agenda. When they get confronted about shit they've done/said they conveniently have collective memory loss (their favourite phrase is "I don't remember"). I'm sad and quite embarrassed that 13% voted for these idiots.
