You Want Broadband At Home? Fine, British Telecom Wants $70,000

The Walker family, who live in a 150-person village in England, would like to upgrade their dialup Internet connection to broadband. Unfortunately, in order to do that, British Telecom insists that they would need to install higher capacity equipment for the entire village, and send the Walkers the £45,000 ($69,788) bill.

It probably goes without saying that BT has a monopoly.
