How many big companies have you worked at? Profit motive is lost after a couple layers, inertia rules. Here's your list modified for corporate America:
* Network build-out goes slower, and is strictly limited to those financially influential areas, with some concessions to politically connected people.
* Company overpays due to incompetence and make this up by overcharging, which doubles the cost.
* Internet prices are higher, as the company needs to recoup quickly due to short attention span of markets.
* Service terrible as financial motivated to fix or upgrade lines is little, and you don't have a duopoly with competing lines in most areas, other areas have tacit agreements.
* The guys hired to do this will be low bidders with no skills to speak of, they will try to hire out the skills after bidding.
* Those in charge will be sales and manager class who have no technical knowledge and do everything the worst way possible.
* You can't vote with your wallet, because you have no choice and your local government has tied you to a provider.
* You can forget about EVER getting speed upgrades, as there's no competition or incentive.
