It's all about economic logic. When the costs of fixing this are less
than lost revenues then Comcast will become interested. They may not
know who is doing what to whom on their network but I'll guarantee that
they have excruciatingly precise financial models. An organized local
effort is the only way to get more competition.

More and more municipality-owned WISPs and broadband providers are
emerging to fill the void.
