If there not going to do the right thing and acknowledge the monopolistic status and behavior of most ISPs, they need to do something to foster more competition. They need to prevent these exclusive deals with municipalities and building owners/developers that prevent competitors from coming in and offering alternatives.

When Next was introduced, I thought it was a terrible deal. After some tweaks and price cuts, AT&T customers are jumping on board as a surprisingly fast rate. Would you consider its monthly installment and early upgrade program?
A surprisingly high number of customers are opting to pay for their own smartphones in monthly installments, avoiding a two-year contract. And that's good news for AT&T.
