Lets take a bit of time to think about that statement.
You're basically giving over your privacy to an inefficient institution that shuts down every other year because the yahoos cannot agree on anything. Capitalism pushes companies to do better than their competitor unless there are no competitors in the area they have a monopoly but that will not last long as other companies will strive to do better.
Bottom line is everything works itself out.
Competition doesn't work when you need to have multiple copies of infrastructure built for each competitor. You have ONE water line to your house. You have ONE electric line to your house. It would be stupid to run multiples of these.
Why aren't ISP networks run the same way? I have FiOS and Comcast available. both have had to run duplicate wires around the entire area for this. That's not 'efficient' at all. And that's with actual 'competition' in place. Or more correctly an Oligarchy.
Physical infrastructure is what's known as a 'natural monopoly' because it doesn't make any economic sense to have duplicate networks. ISPs should be forced to be the same way...just like private electric, water and gas companies are now.
The infrastructure can be shared. For example, in my area, the same physical line will get you either optimum online, or time warner.
With fiber, there is room for even more sharing as we have yet to find the throughput limitations of the physical line. In lap tests, there were cases where they were able to push 36+ terabits per second through a single strand of fiber at a single wavelength, with the limiting factor being the end point equipment. When fiber lines are shared, different companies use different spectrums of light.
The deep sea fiber optic cables are shared between hundreds of companies, providing everything from internet, phone service, and a whole host of other services.
Many state governments have had fiber installed, but much of it remains unused because a lack of competition has caused ISPs to be reluctant to perform any upgrades to their networks. For the area that do use the government installed fiber, there is simply a fee for using the line, which can go to the upkeep of it, at which point multiple ISPs can share the same line
E.g., verizon fios uses 1490nm for download, and 1310nm for upload, another company wanting to use the same lines, can simply use a different wavelength.
You will essentially have a have a service access manager device which will run a bunch of fiber connections, each with a 2.5Gbps download, and 1.2Gbps upload, they will then run that fiber line to a neighborhood, and into a splitter (here is the one near me)
At which point, each ONT will share that line's throughput,
It overall provides a much lower cost distribution system since all of the electronics are located at the end points.
Many people call fiber, the 100 year infrastructure, mainly due to speculation that the throughput handling capability of it is so vast, that it may take 100 years before we even begin to discover the limits of how much data we can push through a strand of glass fiber.
