The study found that broadband providers have enjoyed increasing profits and decreasing costs, to the point where many are seeing “gross margins as high as 95 percent,” by some estimates. “For these companies, selling broadband packages even to the heaviest users is still quite profitable,” researchers wrote.

Sounds like their government-backed franchises are no longer needed since their profit margins are so high. The whole point of getting these sweet franchise deals was that the profit margins were too low and that the only way they could provide service is if they had a monopoly.

I'd only support this law if it exclusively applied to providers that operate under the benefit of franchise agreements.
