Step 1: Eliminate the "franchise fee" local government collects from cable companie(s). It's part of the Communications Act of 1984.
Either that or tar and feather your local elected officials for being greedy and helping the cable companies screw their customers.
Step 2: Convince your state government to eliminate telephone monopolies. It's been about 100 years and POTS buildout is now *shrinking*. So no need to encourage landline usage by keeping telephone monopolies.
