May I suggest a company by the name of Terabeam. They are a company here in Seattle and I feel with their technology they have resolved the "last mile" issue. Very inexpensive and should really have an impact on monopolies. Check them out at www.terabeam.com. They use laser light to pass large amounts of banwidth between companies.
