The telecom deregulatory disaster

http://j.mp/PaUp66  (Wired)

   "In Michigan, a local phone company no longer has to provide wired
    service and is no longer subject to any quality-of-service
    requirements or rate regulation. A carrier in that state doesn't have
    to build lines to any household if it doesn't want to, and can stop
    selling services to you if you just want a phone line. Although every
    state is slightly different, and some states have hung on to the
    authority to require lines to all of their inhabitants, Alabama,
    Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Maine,
    Missouri, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North
    Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconsin have also
    passed flavors of deregulatory bills."
