Imx Fix in my experience

The Tauzin-Dingell bill will be voted on today, and unlike the rest of America, I am not-so-blissfully unaware of what the implications are if it passes (or not). The competitive landscape of the Telecommunication industry is so convoluted to the point where competitors are your ally and enemy. Covad's deal with SBC Communications is a perfect example of this dynamic.

With Tauzin-Dingell possibly making it easier for the larger Telco's to do their DSL thing without opening local lines to the CLEC's, I can hope that a Cable modem will not be my only high speed option. Unfortunately, Verizon seems to be unable to get DSL working right and this bill might end up killing Covad. So at the end of the day, my question will still remain. Who is going to fix this mess and earn the right to my $50/month for a high speed connection?
