No other decent option currently. Comcast is the sole provider of cable internet in my area. The only other options for me are paying $30 a month for 3 mbps DSL from Verizon (which is what I used to have, and it is too slow for multiplayer gaming) and paying $60 a month for satellite internet that has a 10 GB datacap and huge ping times.
The FCC (Federal Communications Commission) back in the 2000's allowed Comcast to build up a monopoly on the cable market in the US, they spent over a decade buying out other smaller cable companies until they were huge, and they are currently the sole cable provider in many of their markets. I don't know their current marketshare, but as of 2011 they already had 40% of the cable market which made them #1 in the US. It was only because the FCC finally started cracking down on them that they raised their datacap from 300 GB to 1 TB. I could pay for unlimited data, but it costs an extra $50 a month and there's no I will pay that so that I can stream games when traditional consoles are still available.
The last UK internet I had only cost like 20 quid more to have unlimited data than the capped version. IIRC the capped version was included free with the phone line too, so paying an extra 20 quid on top of basically nothing wasn't bad at all.
Sounds like your government really screwed the people over there though. Isn't there supposed to be anti-monopoly laws and that kind of stuff to prevent exactly that kind of situation from happening?
Supposedly, but the government doesn't care about them anymore. Just look at everything they have allowed Disney to buy in recent years. Disney now owns:
-Walt Disney Animation Studios (Frozen, Moana, etc.)
-Walt Disney Pictures (Pirates of the Caribbean, live action animated Disney remakes)
-LucasFilm (Star Wars/Indiana Jones)
-20th Century Fox (Avatar, X-Men, Fantastic Four, Deadpool, Kingsman, Planet of the Apes, Alien, Predator, Die Hard, Independence Day, etc.)
-Blue Sky Studios (Ice Age, Rio, etc.)
-A 60% majority stake in tv streaming service Hulu
-FX (tv network)
As it is, Disney already had a huge monopoly before this acquisition, they had 5 of the top 10 highest grossing movies of the year in 2016, 4/10 in 2017, and 3/10 in 2018, though if you include Fox movies from the top 10 that they now own, that number increases to 6/10 in 2016, and 5/10 in 2018. Don't be surprised at all if Disney has at least 5/10 of the highest grossing movies each year moving forward. In 2020 for instance, Disney is releasing Mulan live-action, 2 unannounced Marvel movies, Avatar 2, 2 unannounced Disney live-action movies (probably more adaptations of their animated pictures), and an unannounced Pixar movie, with rumors of the first movie in the Star Wars trilogy from the Game of Thrones producers. In 2021 Disney has scheduled 3 unannounced Marvel movies, 4 unannounced Disney live-action movies, an unannounced Disney animated movie, an unannounced Pixar movie, and Indiana Jones 5, with rumors of the first Star Wars movie in the Rian Johnson trilogy releasing.
Ironically, Comcast, which already owns NBC and Universal, was competing with Disney to buy Fox and got outbid.
