They were going to run glass to every doorstep 'by 2000' back in the 1990's. The big telecomm companies accepted boatloads of tax money to build that infrastructure.
THEY ELECTED NOT TO.
The 'Telecommunication Act of 1996' built huge monopolies instead of encourage competition. Deregulation simply moved tax money into private hands, to be spent on whatever private hands like. Like stock bonuses and perks and 'instant profits' to launder the money into personal income.
Put some teeth in it this time. Make them pay the money back with 20% INTEREST if they don't do what they're supposed to with the money. Otherwise, the money will 'disappear' again.
