Oh My Gulay (OMG)
PowerLine/ Overhead Line Wire
Before there was only one overhead wire installation in the electric post aside for Electric purposes where I recall it was still in log (wood) but because of deforestation the electric companies are using today is cement/concrete electric post ( long cylinder).
Can somebody tell these Television Cable providers in Manila and Provinces,the Telephone and Internet Providers in which Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co. started it all hanging wire ( who started it at all, actually)because of the monopoly. When there was a time using a Black Rotary telephone with Party Lines..he he.... that is how young I am hope it is not obvious.
What is Monopoly?
A monopoly is a situation in which a single company or group owns all or nearly all of the market for a given type of product or service. By definition, monopoly is characterized by an absence of competition, which often results in high prices and inferior products.
According to a strict academic definition, a monopoly is a market containing a single firm. In such instances where a single firm holds monopoly power, the company will typically be forced to divest its assets. Anti-monopoly regulation protects free markets from being dominated by a single entity.
Thereafter Television Cable providers,
The 3 primary Telecoms and Internet Providers namely, PLDT/Smart/Sun and Globe telecoms and BayanTel not to mention the Sky/destiny Cable and Cignal Cable. Did I forget anyone else?
What the heck, every time when a subscriber of Television Cable terminated its subscription the cable were left hanging or rolling in the Meralco's Electric Post then here comes the Telecom/Internet providers when the client cease to subscribe again it left the wire hanging or just rolling . Have not you seen the mess you accumulated up there in the electric post?
Did not you know when you upgrade the system for better signal and improvement. You can remove all the old cables you installed in each providers that no longer exist its uses for the client terminated your services. Your Linemen can recognize the type of cable they installed in each Telephone, Internet and Television cables when they change from previous version of television cable networks to digital box.
Please look up in the sky believe me it is not a plane nor it is Superman, Batman and Spiderman's spider web...it is wiring junks hanging over our head.
