Software cost money, but if we share it then it cost's less....

If you truly understand open source software, then why can't you apply
this to open networking?

Those who own the cables(physical medium) always dictate the price of
the bandwidth. If BT/NTL can't get prices right, then let somebody who
can, why do you think so many small to medium ISP got eaten up or put
out of business by the big telco's???? it's all about the connection to
the customer, getting transit is fairly easy, but getting this bandwith
to the people without treading on telco's toes aint easy, or even legal
at the moment. 
Do you still wonder why the fastest pipe you can get in this city is
piped over Lame Relay, If I asked for a gigabit fiber ethernet
connection.. I wonder what they would say?
weird... Why do I feel this country is in the bandwidth dark ages?
don't you agree... ;-)
