In what way? I have the impression that if there is a biased market,
it's caused by residual monopoly pricing of fibre circuits and
in some cases by legal or de facto monopoly carriers. In other words
it's unfinished business of telecom re-regulation, not new Ig business.

Isn't that exactly where we find traditional telco monopolies as well as
a shortage of infrastructure? At least historically, the Internet was
a victim of this situation, not a cause.
