Not true. There are many places where cable Internet access is not
available. Also, there are many situations where cable isn't
appropriate. For instance, I need a DSL circuit to connect to a local
independent ISP. I can't use Comcast for that. I shouldn't have to
also have incumbent telco service, too, just to get that circuit.
