I agree. The are many reasons for this, mostly dealing with sunk-cost infrastructure and capitalization, awa grandfathered rights of way. MHSC.NET lost its last residential customer, to the cable-modem guys, earlier this year. We just couldn't touch their price/bandwidth price-point without becoming a CLEC. I don't want to be a CLEC. MHSC remains an ISP, leaving the IAP business to someone else.
