I'll take this

As a home broadband customer that lives in the 4th largest city in America in Houston in a middle class type neighborhood that's about 8 miles from the downtown main courthouse I'll take this if it means faster internet speeds. At&t refuses to build out this area even after all I just said. This isn't no rural area. No excuse for me to only have 1.5 mbs measly pathetic slow speeds in 2015.

Earlier this year I got a letter from them saying we upgraded your network so I called them. They then told me lol the speeds are pretty much the same except instead of just DSL it would be Uverse 1.5 mbs now haha what a joke basically they just wanted me to get a new router.

Shocker...

Shill Wheeler is showing his scales.

So wait, your telling me if we let you buy one of the two satellite providers in America, Then...

Then you can roll out fiber to twelve and a half million more homes.

Um, fiber over microwave isnt a real thing so why don't you just roll it out now? Oh that's right, you need the cost savings of firing all those "redundancies" to finance your new new fiber rollout.

Too bad you don't have billions in profit every year you could do that with.

I Know, maybe the beancounters can find a way to deduct it against the anticipated tax liabilities and then they could call it something clever like Capital Expenditures.
The money they will save by cutting the throats of middle management will pay for it.
