I agree - all the tax money put those lines in and the baby bells are a government mandated monopoly. A level playing field would be amazing. When the FCC rolled back many of the '96 telco reform act the small ISP could no longer compete. Wholesale rates were higher than the telco was offering retail rates to the end user.
For a good first step how about the telco's having to live up to their $400 billion in broken contracts. One agreement had every house in NJ to be on fiber by mid 2000s. http://newnetworks.com/bookofb...
I've seen many of those 'stupid laws still on the books'. (I see http://www.dumblaws.com/ exists, amusing. "A woman isn’t allowed to cut her own hair without her husband’s permission.") Why do those even still exist?
It seems like all laws need some time limit, if no one has been successfully tried for something illegal for X number of years the law becomes void.
I'm not sure about your #3 of Loser pays. That may stop someone bringing a case against a GM or other mega corp if they spend millions on lawyers. I see the intent but it could really shaft the little guy.
Is there any website that actually shows the law including all revisions? Instead of the various further laws that are worded like "change part 2, subsection A, paragraph 3 from 'shall' to 'will'" it'd be nice if any changes showed the actual entire new wording
