Remember the Hushaphone :: Adventures in Dubai
Disingenuity in telecom sector

Another good one from Keefieboy. The state wants to protect consumers from inexpensive long distance calls that may be of poor quality.

Consumers can readily sort out for themselves, at little risk, whether a long distance provider is giving good service. We don't need government protection from those providers.

What we need is the removal of government protection of the monopoly telephone company that provides rather expensive not-so-great service because it is protected from competition.

As is my wont, here's another example of the annals of protection of a telephone monopoly. Foreign attachments are not as titilatting as they might sound at first blush.

Is disingenuity a word? It should be.
