If this was a Libertarian Paradise, you probably would pay $500 dollars a month for landline service while someone in a densely populated urban area would pay $5 a month.
Why would that be so bad?
People that want rural living should pay for rural living and should not force urbanites to subsidize their quiet, peaceful life on the farm away from the noise of the city.
The US government has spent the past 50+ years using subsidies and regulations encourage people to get out of the cities.
What has it accomplished except to gut cities and spread asphalt everywhere?
